Since 1986 North York Harvest Food Bank has been the primary food bank in northern Toronto. In 2013 we distributed over 2 million pounds of food through our 42 member agencies running over 60 community programs.
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 of northern Toronto by providing dignified food assistance, education and long-term food solutions.
Last year, families and individuals in northern Toronto received 170,000 food hampers through our network of neighbourhood food banks, community kitchens, perinatal programs, shelters for women and youth, and drop-in meal programs.
In addition to our warehousing and distribution operations, we coordinate a youth engagement initiative, community garden activities, free pick-your-own gleaning trips, and three community food banks.
Register today to be eligible for prizes, discounts, tax receipts and fundraising assistance. Join us and support your North York community!
