We at Humanity First Canada hope that food insecurity soon becomes an issue of the past. Our food bank, based in Vaughan, already serves 500 families a month. However, we know that many more Canadians are struggling to provide for themselves and their families.
In an effort to reach even more Canadians dealing with food insecurity, we are launching the first-of-its-kind Humanity First Online Food Bank. This online ordering system will allow those in-need to place food orders and have them delivered to their door within 48 hours.
Having access to food is not only a basic human necessity, but also a human right. Help us provide sustenance to the members of our community who are struggling with food insecurity.
