Capacity Building Fund
Through the Capacity Building Fund, Food Banks Canada provides grants to support structural improvement to a facility or equipment acquisition that will enable a Member or Affiliate Member food bank to:
- Increase distribution of food and consumer products to existing food bank clients
- Expand distribution of food and consumer products to more clients through new or existing food bank initiatives, programs or partnerships
- Improve food quality and diversity distributed to those in need (e.g. increased fresh, frozen)
- Acquire and distribute food and consumer products more efficiently (i.e. at a lower cost)
In its first year, the Capacity Building Fund distributed $100,000 to 10 food banks across Canada, enabling them to invest in essential capital building projects that increased their efficiently in order to better serve clients.
Thanks to generous support from founding sponsor Kraft Canada, the fund is in its second year and aims to support more food banks with their capacity needs.
