Food Share Network

The Food Share Network is an innovative umbrella that enhances food security in the Capital Region through collaboration and cooperation among food banks, community centres, donors and other participating organizations. The network is emerging as a response to the challenges of coordination in meeting the needs of people accessing food banks and meal services. Food providers are having difficulty getting appropriate quantity and quality of grocery items. Food donors have become weary of increasingly numerous asks. Funding partners are seeking to fund food providers that are collaborating to use limited resources in an efficient manner. There is a broad consensus on shifting toward a focus on food security and self-reliance as a means to create a healthier and more resilient population. The vision of Food Share is that all residents of the Capital Region enjoy food security. To learn more read the Food Share Action Plan
