Community Food Assistance Network

Hunger in Waterloo Region

There is no typical food bank recipient and there are many reasons a person may access emergency food assistance, such as sudden job loss, low income, the rising cost of food, and/or lack of affordable housing. Food insecurity is a complex problem and the solutions are complicated.

Last year, 34,620 individuals were served by the Community Food Assistance Network.

Thanks to you, our caring community, the Community Food Assistance Network is able to provide access and connection to food and other essential services and resources that help people move forward with their lives.
