Hunger Count 2005

HungerCount is a national survey of emergency food programs in Canada conducted by the Canadian Association of Food Banks (CAFB). The survey reveals trends in food bank use, such as the number of emergency food recipients each year, their demographic profiles, the ways in which local food banks meet the demand, and the amount of staff and volunteer time needed to run the food banks. The 2005 HungerCount (in PDF) is available from the CAFB.
