Capacity Building Fund
Program Goals: This fund assists Members and Affiliate Member food banks by providing grants to support capacity building programs in order to develop strong and stable infrastructure within the food banking network.
Support: The Capacity Building Fund provides Members and Affiliate Member food banks with funding to increase their capacity in one or more of the follow areas:
- Distributing more food and consumer products to existing food bank clients.
- Distributing food and consumer products to more clients through expansion of food bank efforts.
- Distributing a greater variety and/or improved quality of food to those in need (e.g. increased fresh, frozen).
- Acquiring and distributing food and consumer products more efficiently (at a lower cost).
How to participate: We invite applications and requests for information from Provincial Members and Affiliate Member food banks. To provide funding for this program, or for more information, please call the Program Specialist, 1-877-535-0958 x234.
The Capacity Building Fund was launched with founding support from Kraft Foods (Canada), an ongoing sponsor of the program.
