Food Banks Work to Meet Surge in Demand with a New COVID-19 Emergency Food Box Program
Feed Ontario has launched a unique program to help support food banks deliver service throughout the pandemic
On May 6, 2020, Feed Ontario, one of Dairy Farmers of Ontario's partners, announced the launch of its new COVID-19 Emergency Food Box Program.
The program will help Ontario’s food banks continue to support their communities while minimizing exposure to COVID-19.
The program is supported by Dairy Farmers of Ontario along with other organizations, like Grain Farmers of Ontario. Local food banks, Food Banks Canada, the government of Ontario as well as Ontario residents have all made donations to help the program get off the ground.
