Phones for Food

The Phones for Food program has officially come to a close. Thank you to all the participants who made the program possible. We were able to work together to keep 800,000 phones out of the landfill and raise close to $1 million for Food Banks Canada and the food bank community.
We are especially proud to have launched the first national wireless device recycling program in Canada.
Phones for Food was made possible with support from Rogers Communications Inc., Purolator Inc., and Global Electric Electronic Processing.
Food Banks Canada would like to thank Rogers Communication for their on-going support. Although Phones for Food has come to a close, Rogers Communications will continue to support Food Banks Canada through a number of other initiatives, including the Toronto Blue Jays’ long-standing Lady Jays Food Drive.
