Feed Ontario will provide an update of this year’s Hunger Report that includes a feature exploring why it is harder to escape poverty today than ever before which is leading to the rapid increase in food bank use. The report discusses food bank use over the year as well as a comparative analysis of food bank visitation from January 1 to September 30, 2022, with that of previous years.
Food Banks United will share who we are, what we do and share our concern with the lack of affordable housing in rural eastern Ontario. We will also provide an update on our client survey that will be taking place early in the new year.
