Here’s How We Help
We are at the centre of the Community Food Assistance Network
The Community Food Assistance Network is a system of 120+ community program and agency partners working together to provide essential meals, shelter, nutrition outreach, counselling and connection to many other services.
Fifty-nine per cent of the food we acquire, coordinate and distribute to the Community Food Assistance Network is fresh or frozen.
Our fleet of refrigerated trucks, onsite coolers, and freezers 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, 40,530 people accessed food assistance in Waterloo region.
Through community partnerships, we obtain and distribute emergency food from our neighbours for our neighbours.
To channel our community’s energy so no one goes hungry.
