1 in 10 Households Need Food Assistance

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-eight per cent of the food we 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, 58,688 people accessed food assistance in Waterloo region.
