Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to benefit the Food Bank of York Region, a program of LIFECORPS INTERNATIONAL, and any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.
What the Food Bank of York Region Does:
We are the regional Food Bank of York Region.
We collect, store, sort and deliver surplus and bulk food donations.
We are the only commercially sized refrigerated food bank that can provide large amounts of fresh and frozen healthy foods.
Who the Food Bank of York Region Supports:
We are comprised of a network of social service agencies, community food pantries, social housing, and shelters (as well as the OSPCA) that reside within York Region that rely on us as their regional head for support and make home deliveries to residents in York Region for emergency food support.
Where your donation goes:
Our focus is on the logistic operations of Food Banking. We create a faster, safer, better access to food, ensuring the food we collect gets into the homes of the residents who need it most. With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are in greater need for monetary donations to help us keep up with the increased demand and need of food support and security.
Hunger In York Region Facts:
Our 2019 Hunger Count was up by 51% from 2018 before the COVID-19 pandemic hit. The Hunger Count increased from 15,000 to 24,000 York Region residents experiencing hunger or food insecurity, and accessing food banking/meal support in one year. The Hunger Count from Jan-April 2020 has already exceeded 11,000 residents, largely impacted by COVID-19’s affect on loss of jobs/income stability for many residents.
