Feed Ontario COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund
COVID-19 EMERGENCY: Food Banks Need Your Help
As the province orders the shut down of all non-essential businesses and services, food banks remain on the frontlines to ensure people in need have access to food during these challenging times.
But COVID-19 is a perfect storm of bad conditions for food banks: there is a surge in demand for support, while fewer volunteers are available to help, and food is harder to acquire. Food banks are starting to run out of food and resources.
We have a plan. We’re working together with Food Banks Canada, local food banks, and our partners to create pre-packed emergency food boxes for all food banks in the province. By combining our efforts, we can help Ontario’s food banks continue to support their communities while also minimizing exposure to COVID-19.
Donate now, or start a fundraiser with family, friends, and colleagues, to help send food safely and efficiently to communities across the province in greatest need.
For just $30, you can provide an Emergency Food Box that will supply enough food to help someone in need stay home and stay safe during the COVID-19 crisis for a full week.
100% of the funds donated to Feed Ontario's Emergency Response Fund will go directly to the provision of food and supplies for local food banks and the people they serve.
