The coronavirus pandemic has had a huge impact on the economy, and Canada’s food banks have experienced a surge in demand. Food Banks worry that high demand will endure beyond the pandemic as people living in poverty are often the first to be affected during periods of downturn, and the last ones to come out in a recovery.
Inforce Foundation has implemented a Food Drive program and is working in partnership with many small-businesses across the GTA. The food collection bins will be picked up from each location by Inforce Foundation volunteers on a regular basis.
The donation of non-perishable food items will be made to local food banks, including the Scarborough Centre for Healthy Communities Food bank.
