The Canadian infrastructure sector has truly been remarkable in its response to helping our communities cope with the impacts of the ongoing pandemic. Last spring, companies stepped up to provide front-line health-care workers with much-needed personal protective equipment (PPE) when it was at a diminishing supply.
Along with the demand on our health-care system, the pandemic has also severely impacted our social supports as joblessness and mounting financial hardships lead more Canadians to seek help in their communities to feed, clothe and house their families. That is why The Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships has chosen Community Food Centres Canada as this year’s charity of choice.
For close to a decade, Community Food Centres Canada has been working to re-imagine the role food can play in low-income communities. With more than 200 partners in 175 communities across the country, we’re building a new approach.
Community Food Centres respond at the grassroots level to food insecurity and social exclusion. At the same time, we fight at the national level for progressive income policy. This includes better wages and more stable jobs, stronger social assistance and benefits, and a range of other social supports while coming together around good food.

“Before COVID-19, 1 in 8 Canadians were food insecure. Now that number is 1 in 7. When you give to Community Food Centres Canada, you are supporting solutions that foster connection, improve health and well-being and create community - all at a time when it’s needed more than ever.”
