Ontario Food Bank Association releases report 12-01-2014 AS

The Ontario Association of Food Banks released their annual hunger report today. Manager of Memberships and Communications, Amanda King explains that the report revealed a twenty percent increase in demand for service over the past year, which is putting more pressure on our local food banks. The association is calling on the government to make three changes: implementing a monthly Ontario housing benefit for low income tenants, an increase to payments and updates to Ontario’s social assistance programs, and they are asking for funding to the food banks. Twenty percent of Ontario food banks run out of food at least once a year.
