As a proud partner of Food Banks of Canada, we believe in their vision of a Canada where no one goes hungry. Together, we can make a more impactful difference for the people we work alongside and places where we live. To date, we’ve served every single province and territory in Canada with the contribution of 11 million meals, or, more than 63 million lbs of food (and counting!).
Partnership ImpactWhen Club House, French’s, and Food Banks of Canada combine forces, the result is maximized, collective impact, that ultimately strengthens our local capacity and hopefully reduces the need for food banks longer term
After the Bell Program
Food Bank Canada’s After The Bell program addresses the issue of childhood hunger, by ensuring that children experiencing food insecurity have access to the nutritious food that keeps their growing bodies healthy and strong, specifically during the summer months when school nutrition programs are not available. 33% of those using food banks are children and this program is critical in addressing and relieving hunger across Canada. In 2023 we are committed to sending 185,000 food packs to over 200 communities across the country, so that more children can have access to healthy, nutritious food packs in between school seasons.
What's in a typical Food Pack?
Each healthy food pack contains child friendly, nutritious foods. The packs are assembled with shelf stable items such as hummus, crackers, granola bars, oatmeal, milk and sunflower seeds. The packs are then sent to the local food bank who uses grant money to supplement the food packs with perishable items such as apples, sugar snap peas, cheese, and yogurt.
Investments In Local Food Banks
Annually, Food Banks of Canada provides policy recommendations that address the underlying causes of food insecurity. With the introduction of a new, national food policy, including $50M over five years, we continue to support the infrastructure of charitable organizations, including food banks and Food Banks Canada advocacy efforts.
