About Our Charity
Food for Life is a registered, accredited non-profit charitable organization that assists in filling the gap between social assistance and living costs by providing nutritious perishable food to families on a weekly basis. Seven days a week, we collect surplus perishable food from grocery stores and both retail and wholesale food suppliers. Our emphasis is on fresh food that we can deliver quickly to those in need through our network of over 100 community agencies and outreach programs.
We are able to divert more than 2.2 million pounds of food annually from landfills and direct it to more than 28,000 client visits each month. This food provides for the equivalent of 175,000 meals per month. Our network of approximately 800 volunteers assist us in remaining extremely lean in our operation which ensures the maximum amount of donated funds go to our programs. These efficiencies allow us to allocate 93% of funds received to our programs and just 7% to management and administration fees. Furthermore, Food for Life is able to convert a $1 donation into more than $15.40 worth of food. This commitment ensures that we are among the top fiscally responsible organizations operating today. Our full financials can be viewed on the Canada Revenue Agency’s charity listings:
