Case Study - The North York Food Bank
The North York Harvest Food Bank is the principal food bank for northern Toronto. During its relocation to a new facility in 2015, the NYHFB partnered with the Sobey Foundation in a five year agreement to cover all rental costs associated with the new location. Sobeys Ontario had been a long time partner of the NYHFB, through a wide array of cash and in-kind support. When the Organization was faced with a emergency move, the Sobey Foundation was pleased to support an innovative approach to helping its capital needs. The partnership enables the Food Bank to focus on fundraising for its core functions of distributing over two million pounds of food through sixty community programs to citizens across North Toronto.
