Food Banks Canada: COVID-19 Special Appeal
Food Banks Canada is currently accepting donations to support food banks’ coronavirus response efforts across Canada.
Providing food to those in need can be difficult at the best of times. With COVID-19, that task just got harder. Yet food banks continue to be leaders in their communities in providing food to those that live with food insecurity.
Food Banks Canada is in regular contact with the network of food banks across Canada and already there are signs of COVID-19’s devastating impact on the food bank system:
- Food banks are already seeing drastic declines in the number of volunteers that are able to support their work in the days/weeks ahead.
- Food banks are concerned about the amount of stock they have access to as a dwindling workforce means fewer pickups.
- Most food banks are worried about how to financially support themselves through this crisis and beyond.
- While the public prepares for possible impacts of COVID-19, food bank users cannot afford the same measure, leaving them more vulnerable.
Food banks are adapting to these rapidly changing circumstances but it is clear that help is needed.
