“Food Banks Canada provides such an important and vital community service, FCPC and our members are pleased to make this donation,” said Michael Graydon, Chief Executive Officer at FCPC. “It continues to be a priority for us and our members to support this very important cause, particularly in the summer months when donations to food banks often decline.”

 

The day would not have been possible without the generous support of many sponsors who made financial contributions as well as donated prizes.

Every month over 860,000 people make the difficult choice to ask a Food Bank for help. The impact of your donation helps Food Banks to take action to create a Canada where no one goes hungry. Click here to view to view HungerCount 2016.
