Working Together So No One Goes Hungry

The Food Bank of Waterloo Region has always been a leader, taking risks and doing things differently while nourishing collaboration. We feel very strongly that the only way to have significant impact addressing hunger in our communities and across the country is to work together.  We not only celebrate our accomplishments and the strength o partnerships but work to share successes in order to foster new and stronger relationships to increase our impact on hunger locally, regionally, provincially and nationally.

We are proud to provide leadership to the Community Food Assistance Network composed of more than 100 programs supporting more than 31,000 people in Waterloo Region. This vital network of programs is resilient, forward-thinking and responsive to emerging changes locally, provincially and nationally. In addition, we operate the Food Bank Distribution System which works with over 30 food banks throughout South Western Ontario. By working together, The Food Bank of Waterloo Region is able to source, transport, warehouse and redistribute large donations of food from manufacturers, growers and retailers to increase the quantity and variety of nutritious food available to food banks and reduce food waste.

Beyond food, The Food Bank provides leadership and innovation that improves the lives of not only program participants but also those in our community wanting to give back in tangible ways through volunteerism, financial or food donations. 

The Food Bank takes its responsibility to the community seriously and strives for excellence as illustrated by our accreditation from Imagine Canada and acknowledged by receipt of the Food Bank Innovator Award & Business Excellence Award from the Greater KW Chamber of Commerce.

Our success and impact is thanks to you - the community - who supports us every day.
