Relieving hunger today. Preventing hunger tomorrow. Food Banks Canada is the only national charitable organization dedicated to helping Canadians living with hunger. We do this by supporting a network of 10 Provincial Associations and more than 500 food banks, sharing food and funds and delivering programs and services. While we are focused on helping food banks meet the need of food insecure Canadians today, we are also dedicated to finding ways to reduce and eliminate hunger tomorrow by influencing policy through research, awareness raising, and advocacy.
