As a monthly donor, you are one of the most important members of the Food Banks Canada community. And, since breakfast is considered by many to be the most important meal of the day, we’ve named our monthly donor program the Breakfast Club.

When you join our Breakfast Club, we’ll send you information about how your ongoing support is making a difference. Starting the month after you enrol, you’ll get an insider look at how your gift is working hard every day to support our network of food banks in helping Canadians in need. We hope you look forward to these updates exclusively for our Breakfast Club members.

To join the Breakfast Club please complete this secure online form, or contact Lauren at 905-602-5234 ext. 239 or by email at [email protected].

Your legacy can take many forms. Making a gift to Food Banks Canada by including a bequest in your Will is a simple and thoughtful way to reflect your commitment to reducing hunger in Canada.

Over 1.5 million Canadians have already chosen to support causes close to their heart by leaving a gift in their will.

Each and every one of them has their own individual reasons – but some of the most common are:

  • To 'pay back' for support and services received.
  • To prevent others from experiencing food insecurity.
  • To leave the world a better place.
  • To extend their generosity beyond immediate family and friends.
  • To fulfill a spiritual or religious obligation to be helpful to others to the greatest possible degree.

Whether you choose to leave a percentage of your estate, a specific dollar amount, or your entire estate, rest assured that your bequest will be received with gratitude and handled with the utmost care to ensure that it makes a positive difference in the lives of Canadians in need.

Leaving a bequest in your Will is simple, and there is no additional cost beyond the cost to prepare your Will.

To learn more about making a bequest to Food Banks Canada in your Will, including sample wording, read our guide, Bequest Information Sheet.
