Abstract:

The Canadian Association of Food Banks’ (CAFB) HungerCount survey is the only annual measure of hunger and food insecurity in Canada. Food banks in every province and territory, from rural and urban areas alike, participate by providing data on the extent of emergency food bank and food program use in their communities. The information they provide captures 75% of emergency food recipients who are relying on more than 639 food banks and 2,648 affiliated agencies across the country to meet the most basic of needs. This vast and diverse network of non-governmental providers shares one common experience above all others: recipients depend on them because they do not have sufficient income to purchase the food they need for themselves and their families. At the same time, food banks are the first to acknowledge that they are not the appropriate vehicle for ensuring that the right to food is realized.
