Hunger Report 2020

Between April 1st, 2019 and March 31st, 2020, Ontario’s food banks were accessed by 537,575 individuals that visited more than 3.2 million times throughout the year. This is a 5.3 percent increase in the number of unique individuals over the previous year, and a 7.8 percent increase in the last two years. The primary reason that an adult or family may need to access a food bank is that they do not have sufficient income to afford all of their necessities, like rent, heat, hydro, transportation, and food, in a given month.
