About RFDA of Northwestern Ontario:
In 2003, the RFDA (Regional Food Distribution Association) of Northwestern Ontario began as a result of food banks coming together to rationalize their services, coordinate food sourcing, maximise purchasing power, and glean efficiencies across a regional network. This organization was later registered as a charity in Ontario in 2007.
The RFDA’s primary function is to source food from the public, local businesses and farms for distribution. The charity also coordinates the collective efforts of stakeholders to address food insecurity in the community, works with local entrepreneurs and students to incubate business ventures and helps disadvantaged community members become job ready.
The RFDA is a designated hub for charitable food distribution, representing Food Banks Canada in Northwestern Ontario. Provincially, as a member of the Ontario Association of Food Banks, the RFDA has succeeded in becoming a ‘food bank for food banks’, supplying food to 38 food banks and feeding programs as of F2013.
This charity did not report fundraising costs for F2014. Administrative costs were 4% of revenues in F2014. It has funding reserves of $179k, which cover 43% of annual program costs.
This report is an update that is currently being reviewed by the charity. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
