What is Capacity?
Keeping pace with the growing need for the services of food banks strains resources. Strengthening the food banking network’s ability to provide more food and specifically fresh food to Canadians in need is an important focus. Food Banks Canada is supporting the food bank network across Canada by investing in vital infrastructure needed to recover and distribute good, safe surplus food to Canadian families in need.
Our retail capacity grants are supporting food banks across Canada to help local organizations purchase equipment to expand cold chain capability to make fresh and perishable foods more accessible.
