Since 1986, North York Harvest Food Bank has been the primary food bank in northern Toronto. In 2014, we distributed over 2 million pounds of food through our 42 member agencies.
An independent, charitable organization, we envision a community where all members are able to meet their food needs. Our mission is to engage our community in meeting the food needs or northern Toronto by providing dignified food assistance, education and long-term food solutions.
Last year, families and individuals received 180,000 food hampers through our network of local, community food banks, community kitchens, perinatal programs, shelters and drop-in meal programs.
In addition to our warehouse and distribution operations, we coordinate engagement initiatives, community garden activities and three community food banks.
