Food programs

Fresh, nutritious food is essential to a healthy diet. Feed Ontario's food programs work in partnership with Ontario's agricultural, food, and grocery sectors to ensure food banks are stocked with the fresh, healthy food they need to support their communities.

How donated food moves through our network

Large-scale donations of shelf stable or fresh and frozen foods are an important way Feed Ontario helps keep food bank shelves full. Learn about how food donations move through our network to help ensure everyone in Ontario has access to healthy and nutritious food.

Moving food across Ontario is not an easy feat. With the collective effort of our network of partners, volunteers, and member organizations, we move more than 7 million pounds of nutritious food to all corners of the province each year.
