Food banks rely on the Canadian food industry

  • Each year, 3.2 million tonnes of surplus food is produced, and 96% is not rescued.

The Drive Away Hunger Story

Early on, Drive Away Hunger was known for its tractor tours in every province, picking up millions of pounds in food donations. Today, the Canadian food industry comes together as donors to have an even more significant impact on food insecurity. You can make a real difference too, when you join the drive.
