What is World Food Day?

The organization supports a network of Provincial Associations, affiliate food banks and food agencies that work at the community level to relieve hunger across the country. Its focus is on maximizing collective impact, strengthening local capacity and reducing the need for food banks.

of those relying on food banks nationally are children, even though they only represent 20% of the population.
of those using food banks are from single-person households.
of food distributed by Canadian food banks is fresh (e.g. milk, eggs, bread, proteins and fresh fruits and vegetables).
