Food Bank Use Hits Record High in Ontario

Syndicated from: Daily Bread Food Bank

A new report released on Monday by the Ontario Association of Food Banks (OAFB) revealed alarming new data: food bank use in Ontario has hit an all-time high, with over 412,000 Ontarians accessing food support and hunger-relief programs every month. In this community alone there are almost 67,000 visits from children and adults accessing our member agencies every month. The Ontario Association of Food Banks is continuing to pursue the recommendations for change that it made in its 2011 Hunger Report, including advocating for a housing benefit for low income individuals. Find out more about a proposed Ontario housing benefit here http://www.dailybread.ca/learning-centre/housing-benefit/ The Ontario Hunger Report is a compilation of data collected through the annual HungerCount report of Food Banks Canada. The full report is available online at www.OAFB.ca.
