HungerCount 2014

Food Banks Canada has released its annual HungerCount report:

“In March 2014, 841,191 people received food from a food bank in Canada. Food bank use increased by 1% compared to the same period in 2013. It is dismaying that the number of people utilizing this service remains 25% higher than in 2008.  This means that each and every month, 170,000 more people walk through the door of a food bank than was the case before the economic downturn.”
