Today, Daily Bread Food Bank in partnership with North York Harvest Food Bank, have released Who's Hungry 2021 - a report profiling hunger in the city of Toronto.
This year’s report reveals there were 1.45 million visits to food banks in the past year, the highest number ever recorded in the city’s history. The report also finds that for the first time, new clients outnumbered existing clients at Toronto food banks. With 1 in 3 food bank clients reporting having gone an entire day without eating, we need to advocate for systemic change.
Join us for a webinar discussion on Thursday, November 25 at 12:30pm EST, on how we can move from crisis to resilience as we discuss our calls to action. Please click here to register.
