Capacity Building Fund
Through the Capacity Building Fund, Food Banks Canada provides grants to support structural improvements to a facility or the purchase of equipment that will enable a food bank or Provincial Association to:
Increase distribution of food and consumer products to existing food bank clients
Expand the distribution of food and consumer products to more clients through new or existing initiatives, programs or partnerships
Improve food quality and diversity distributed to those in need, including offering an increase in fresh and/or frozen foods
Acquire and distribute food and consumer products more efficiently
The Capacity Building Fund has distributed $370,000 to food banks across Canada to help them invest in their capacity to better serve Canadians experiencing hunger.
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.
