Maple Leaf Centre for Action on Food Security commits over $800,000 to partnerships


The Maple Leaf Centre for Action on Food Security has committed over $800,000 to three partnerships with organizations seeking to alleviate food insecurity across Canada.

Ottawa Food Bank will leverage the findings from a Centre-supported research project to test and scale holistic “wrap-around” support services for food bank clients, including employment services, mental health care, financial capability support, and language education.

Carrefour Solidaire Community Food Centre will scale the Carte Proximité program in Montreal, which seeks to increase the financial accessibility of fresh and prepared foods through reloadable charge cards.

The Northern Manitoba Food, Culture, and Community Collaborative will grow its granting to grassroots and community partners across the province, support shared learning, and engage in community and strategic planning.

“These new project investments cover a range of supports for people experiencing food insecurity across Canada,” from Sarah Stern, leader of the Centre. “We’re honoured to partner with these organizations to address the immediate needs of people experiencing food insecurity and to learn how to effect longer-term changes. As a first step, we continue to advocate for the Federal Government to set a target to reduce food insecurity by at least 50 per cent by 2030.”
