PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE
Supporters of Food Banks Canada are passionate people who care deeply about the problem of hunger in Canada.
They want to ensure that everyone in this country has access to nutritious food in order to live high quality, healthy and whole lives.
With the generous support of our donors, we can continue to provide critical access to food from coast-to-coast-to-coast, whilst also keeping the momentum in our advocacy work to address the root causes of food insecurity.
Their leadership and generosity is making a tangible impact to relieve hunger today and prevent hunger tomorrow, and we remain deeply grateful for their support.
Here are some of the reasons why people like you are taking action to reduce food insecurity in Canada:
“I recently named Food Banks Canada as a beneficiary in my will. I made this legacy gift because I wanted my small estate to work small wonders by keeping open what I consider to be emergency grocery stores for people who unexpectedly find themselves in need.
My choice was simple. Nothing is more essential than food – and an organization that efficiently provides it. I am confident that my contribution will enable people to access basic necessities in a dignified manner.”– Claudette Jones, legacy donor
“The pandemic has had a profound impact on our communities and further worsened the inequalities that were already present pre-pandemic. So many people were negatively impacted with businesses shutting down and hours being cut.
Being in a position to help, we feel a responsibility to do so where we can. For us, Food Banks Canada was an obvious choice. Food insecurity has such a large impact on individuals and their situations. The ability of food Banks Canada to direct the support to where it is needed most was also appealing.
It was the pandemic that prompted us to connect with Food Banks Canada, learning more about the work they do, and it is a cause we will support for years to come.”– Greg Moore & Kyu Choi
We’re also thankful to these donors for their support:
