Here’s How We Help

We are at the Centre of a Network of 100+ Community Programs and Agency Partners

The Community Food Assistance Network provides essential meals, shelter, nutrition outreach, counselling and connection to many other services.

More than 64% of the food we acquire, coordinate and distribute to the Community Food Assistance Network is fresh or frozen.

Our fleet of refrigerated trucks, on-site coolers and freezer ensure we are safely storing and transporting thousands of pounds of fresh, frozen and non-perishable food every day.

We are the source for reliable information about hunger and food insecurity in Waterloo Region.

Last year, 33,355 people accessed food assistance in Waterloo Region.

Our Mission

Through community partnerships, we obtain and distribute emergency food from our neighbours for our neighbours.

Our Vision

To channel our community’s energy so no one goes hungry.
