More Facts


As a national organization, our mandate and the scope of our network are vast. We need the help of many organizations to fulfill our mandate. That’s why corporate support is essential: it provides much of the funding and food donations required to deliver our programs.

Food Banks Canada has the expertise and experience required to help our corporate partner organizations develop unique, effective programs that accomplish a number of corporate engagement initiatives. Having an impact on hunger can be as simple as providing an annual charitable donation to Food Banks Canada, or it can involve a more complex partnership.

We also have a well-established, efficient food and consumer packaged goods distribution network called the National Food Sharing System, through which we can ensure that the donations received are handled correctly and are effectively put to work for the benefit of those in need.
