This year, we’ve chosen The Vaughan Food Bank, an organization dedicated to serving the needy residents of Vaughan, agencies in York Region, such as Loft Community Services, Crosslinks Street Outreach Services Network, the Vitanova Foundation, Caritas, 360 kids, and Elspeth Heyworth Centre for Women, in addition to other food banks in York Region.

Operating since 1995, the Vaughan Food Bank is run entirely by volunteers; there are no paid staff. The Vaughan Food Bank is supported by contributions from various corporations and individuals and receives no monetary support from municipal, provincial or federal governments.
