5 Simple Ways You Can Help

Thank you for visiting our new blog and showing interest in helping Canadians in need, we are excited to have a forum to communicate with our community.  We look forward to sharing news about the work of the food bank community in Canada, and engaging in conversation around hunger in Canada. Hear from the Food Banks Canada team, our food bank network, guest contributors and supporters. 

If you are here looking for a way to make a difference today, here are five simple ways you can help:

  • Check your pantry... any extra food can be dropped at your local food bank to help keep shelves stocked. See the list of the top 10 most needed items.

  • Join our e-news to get all the latest information on hunger in Canada and ways you can make a difference

  • Join your local food bank and/or provincial association to reduce hunger in your community! Participate in our upcoming national event Every Plate Full to help raise food and funds across Canada May 2nd to May 8th

  • Follow us (Facebook/Twitter/ YouTube / Instagram) and lend your voice to raise awareness, and help Canadians in need.  

  • Speak to your employer. If you are a national corporation looking to make a difference, let’s connect.

Special Thanks to:

  • We are extremely excited to partner with French’s this year. French’s is squeezing out hunger in Canada with a little help from our favourite condiment-ketchup! For every purchase of a bottle of French’s Ketchup, a donation will be made to Food Banks Canada.

  • PepsiCo’s support of our holiday #recipesthatgive campaign. Many of the recipes submitted will be shared with community kitchens over the coming year. And for every donation made during the campaign, PepsiCo matched it up to $25k

  • Everyone who donated during the 2014 holiday season to the Loblaw Companies Food Drive-it was a huge success! You helped raise food and funds for local food banks across the country. The next holiday food drive will be this Spring!
