Our Mission: “Let No One Go Hungry

Our Goals are as follows:

We provide food to food banks.

The Regional Food Distribution Association (RFDA) hopes to fulfill this mission by better securing and distributing emergency food to meet the needs of Northwestern Ontario. The RDFA was formed in June 2003 to develop and implement a coordinated strategy for the delivery of donated food to community organizations that provide for those with food shortages. Its current membership includes food distributing agencies from the city of Thunder Bay, Ontario, and the Region.

We strive to bridge the gap between those who need food and those who can provide it, by collecting and distributing food donations to remote and underserved communities. Our food programs also provide fresh and nutritious food options to those who might otherwise have limited access. We are committed to making sure that no one goes hungry in Northwestern Ontario and are dedicated to supporting the well-being of all community members.


We believe in the power of community and collective impact. With the generous support of local businesses, organizations, and individuals like you, we organize special food collection drives throughout the year to make a positive difference in the lives of those facing food insecurity.

What we’re collecting:

1. Non-perishable food items such as canned goods, pasta, rice, and more.

2. Fresh food items that contribute to a wholesome meal experience.


In the vast expanse of the Northern Territories, where distances are great and access can be challenging, we at the RFDA are committed to ensuring that no community goes without essential nourishment. Our mission is to transport food via land, air, and ice roads to reach remote and underserved areas.

Who Benefits?

Families and individuals in remote areas who face challenges accessing a consistent food supply. Your support allows us to maintain these critical lifelines, ensuring that no one is left behind. Together, we are making a tangible impact on the lives of our fellow community members.


We are on a mission to combat food insecurity by not only providing immediate relief through food donations but also by empowering communities with knowledge of sustainable food practices. Together, we’re creating a pathway to a future where no one goes hungry.

Why Both are Essential?

Immediate Relief: Food donations address the urgent needs of today, providing comfort and sustenance.

Sustainable Practices: Knowledge of sustainable food practices builds resilience, ensuring self-sufficiency for the future.
