HungerCount is a national survey of food bank use in Canada. Initiated in 1989, HungerCount has been conducted on an annual basis since 1997. Each year, we invite every food bank in Canada to participate in order to provide an up-todate national portrait of food bank use and hunger. As the only study of its kind in Canada, HungerCount is a unique measure of assessing hunger in the country. It is important to note that many individuals and families who are food insecure do not use food banks or other charitable food programs. As such, food bank use alone underestimates the extent of the problem nationwide.
