About Ontario Association of Food Banks:
Founded in 1992, the Ontario Association of Food Banks (OAFB) is a network of over 120 member food banks and over 1,100 hunger-relief programs across Ontario. Its programs include: working with companies to allow food banks to purchase food at a discounted rate; coordinating national and provincial food drives and large scale donations from the food industry; giving grants for children's programs in rural food banks; connecting volunteers from commercial businesses with local farms, where they hand-pick left-over produce and deliver it to local food banks; partnering with local companies to encourage consumers to purchase local, with a portion of sales going to support hunger relief programs; and working with Ontario associations to provide milk, eggs, chicken, pork and beef to food banks. The OAFB also publishes an annual Hunger Report that tracks food bank usage in Ontario and the state of hunger in various regions of the province.
Every year, the OAFB acquires and distributes eight million pounds of food and collects one million litres of milk from 500 dairy farmers. Together with its member agencies, the OAFB serves over 375,000 individuals, including 131,000 children, every month.
Administrative costs are 0.4% of revenue. Fundraising costs are 2% of revenue. OAFB has funding reserves of $519k, which cover 21% of annual program costs excluding the value of donated food and 3% of annual program costs including the cost of donated food.
This charity report is an update that is being reviewed by OAFB. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
