Food Bank Use In Ontario Down

But not by much

Fewer people in Ontario have used food banks this year, compared to last – slightly fewer. The Ontario Association of Food Banks annual report says 335,000 people in Ontario have used a food bank every month this year, six per cent fewer than last year. The Association even fewer would be relying on food banks, if they could get help paying their rent and electricity bill. Food bank use in Ontario peaked at 404,000 per month in 2012.
