No one should miss a meal due to poverty

The Food Bank of York Region (FBYR) is dedicated to alleviating food insecurity and hunger in York Region. We serve as a nexus between the abundance of surplus food in Ontario and the non-profit organizations that provide food and meals in their programs, and food-insecure individuals serviced by our mobile food bank program.

What We Do

FBYR collects, warehouses and delivers surplus food to community partners all across York Region.

Why We Do It

Members of our community face homelessness, mental illness and physical disabilities. Help us provide healthy food choices.

Get Involved

You can help address the food crisis by donating goods, financial contributions and volunteering.

Impacting our neighbourhood

In light of the increased demand for food assistance since Covid-19, the Food Bank of York Region has increased its food collection and delivery services to help meet the need in our community.

Since 2020, our food distribution has grown by over 100% to provide food for over 3 million meals annually. With your support we can ensure that more food reaches more people in need in our region.
