Giving back to our communities

WHAT ARE WE DOING?

We are committed to supporting our local communities, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As the pandemic puts strains on families across the country, food banks are on the front lines, helping ensure vulnerable Canadians receive vital food support during this difficult time.

That is why we have pledged $100,000 to local food banks in our communities.

WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?

Monetary donations allow food banks to purchase critical supplies. Let’s say you pay $4 for a jar of peanut butter. Your local food bank may be able to get that same jar for a lot less through their supply chain. Your monetary donations can go a long way for food banks.

 

DID YOU KNOW?

In 2019, food banks across Canada reported a value of $64.9 million in shared food up from $60.2 million in 2018. In addition, food banks in Canada received $811,851 directly from donors through nationally coordinated campaigns which increased by a significant margin to $3.1 million in 2019.
