In 2023, 18% of Canadians experienced food insecurity, which represents 1 in 5 households. Against this backdrop of rising food insecurity, Freedom City is on the frontlines to help as many people as we can. In the fiscal years 2022-2023, we received and distributed over 1.6 million pounds of food, benefiting over 4000 individuals weekly. In August of 2023 we launched the Zero Hunger program, aiming to eradicate food insecurity in the GTA, through collaboration with businesses, organizations, government agencies and network partners. Since then, we have begun to make inroads in reducing food insecurity in a number of communities in the GTA and other areas in Ontario in collaboration with our Network Partners. 

Massive Scale of Food Distribution

Throughout the year, in 2022-2023 received and distributed over 1.6 million pounds of food to approximately 4000 persons on a weekly basis. This achievement showcases our capacity to mobilize and manage large-scale logistics to serve those in need. This results in the provision of over 500,000 meals annually. This remarkable number reflects our commitment to ensuring that individuals and families facing food insecurity have access to nutritious meals all year round.

Regional Expansion of Services

Freedom City's commitment to fighting food insecurity extends beyond metropolitan areas, presently reaching communities in Oshawa, London and Bancroft with plans to expand our services to other low income, high poverty areas including Hamilton, Windsor and Thunder Bay. This extension of our services ensures that essential food distribution and resources are available province-wide, particularly in regions that might otherwise be underserved. Our initiatives are carefully tailored to meet the unique needs of each community, showcasing our adaptability and dedication to a comprehensive approach in addressing hunger throughout Ontario.
