The Food Bank of Waterloo Region is part of a Food Assistance Network made up of over 100 food programs. Our role is to acquire food and distribute it to agency programs in Waterloo Region for the people who need help. We work with our community, corporate partners, the Ontario Association of Food Banks (OAFB) and Food Banks Canada to manage food industry trends and acquire the needed food so our member agencies can continue their essential work.
As our community grows, so does the need for food assistance resulting in new programs and changing organizational priorities to diversify our operations to meet these needs. As a result, The Food Bank of Waterloo Region requires the support of staff and volunteers with specific skill sets and expertise to help us achieve our goals.
