No one ever plans to need services such as a Food Bank until they do. The reality is that many in our community just don’t have the means to get by.
The decline in jobs that pay a living wage and employer pensions benefits, loss of jobs due to lay-offs and increases in interest rates, mean that many of our neighbours are unable to get the basic necessities for their families.
We provide emergency food supports to individuals faced with any form of financial hardships. We also work with and support other similarly aligned charities and non-profit organizations working to alleviate the effects of poverty. (For more information, visit Feed Ontario).
In a world that produces enough food to feed everyone, nobody should be going hungry, but hunger for many is an unfortunate reality. We aim to alleviate these effects by connecting those in need with supplemental food supports that might otherwise be out of reach.
