The Regional Food Distribution Association (RFDA) of Northwestern Ontario is one of the many food banks that collects and distributes food to shelters, homes, and people in dire need. The significant difference: they also provide food for the food banks.
The association started in June 2003 with the primary aim of alleviating hunger across the Northwestern region. Since then, the programs have prospered into more fruitful, meaningful, and diverse initiatives that further target what the RFDA primarily set up.
RFDA aims to create a reliable and equitable emergency food delivery system throughout the region, coordinate food from individuals and businesses, promote the universal right to have access to healthy food, and provide instruction on food preparation and active livelihood for sustainability. Our mission is simple, “Let no one go hungry in our midst.”
