Celebrating Our Donors!
At Food Banks Canada, we are incredibly thankful to our dedicated donors who are essential to our success and ability to reduce hunger today and prevent hunger tomorrow. Through their help, we have been able to acquire and share millions of pounds of food and provide program grants to food banks across the country.
 
Every year, we recognize the companies that made outstanding commitments to Food Banks Canada and a difference in the lives of Canadians with our Corporate Partnership Awards.   

Award of Excellence

Our 2016 Award of Excellence, the award of lifetime achievement, was given to Kellogg’s Canada. We are proud to recognize Kellogg’s Canada for their long-term commitment to food banks in Canada. For over 10 years, they have provided critical support to Food Banks Canada. From supporting the After the Bell  program, focused on reducing summer hunger for children, Hunger Awareness Week and the National Food Banking Conference to donating food to our National Food Sharing System, Kellogg’s Canada continues to demonstrate their commitment to the issue of hunger in Canada.
