A Note About Food Program Closures:  There have been a number of food bank closures in the city. At this time, Daily Bread Food Bank is entering into a partnership to bring on approximately 12 new food bank distribution centres. This will happen over two phases, in approximately two weeks. Following the launch of these food banks, Daily Bread may strategically select additional locations to match the need.

Daily Bread Food Bank's 2020 Annual General Meeting

October 22, 2020

On Tuesday, October 20, Daily Bread Food Bank hosted our 2020 Annual General Meeting. Although things looked a little different this year due to COVID-19 restrictions, we were able to host our members virtually.  

In the history of our organization, we have never seen such a need in our city as we have in the last six months of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are incredibly inspired by the work of our membership and their front-line staff as they have worked tirelessly to support those in need during this time of crisis.

We want to give a special thanks to Sarah Diebel, Board Chair, Victor Willis, Agency Representative, and Mark Wilson, who have retired from their positions on Daily Bread’s Board of Directors. Their presence at the Board Table will be missed by all.

On that note, Daily Bread is excited to announce our new Board Executives; Ben Wise, Chair, Karen Hsiung, Vice-Chair, Gale Kelly, Treasurer, and Adam Baksh, Corporate Secretary. We look forward to working along side them as we fight to end hunger in our community.

We are delighted to share a closer look at this year’s collective efforts to end hunger:

On behalf of the staff at Daily Bread Food Bank and the clients we serve, we want to extend a tremendous thank you to our member agencies, and our Board of Directors. Without their passion and commitment to ending hunger and poverty, our work would not be possible.
