Feed Ontario supports food banks across the province on an equitable basis. Our SNAP program uses smart algorithms to allocate food based on the number of people served, food bank capacity, and recent food deliveries.

For every one dollar donated, Feed Ontario can provide the equivalent of two meals. As a province-wide organization Feed Ontario can use economies of scale and bulk purchasing to secure lower rates on our food costs. We further supplement this through the strong partnerships we have developed with Ontario's food and transportation sectors, which provide us with discounted, at-cost, and donated services and food.
We calculate the cost of a meal by looking at operating costs and how much food is donated to Feed Ontario. Operating expenses include costs to collect, store, and transport food to our member food banks.
We divide the total number of pounds of food donated by the cost of operating and delivering donations to food banks across the province.
Our partners help to provide meals to more than 587,000 people each year. Learn more about becoming a partner.
