FoodFundTO: 30,000 Meals in 30 Days

Donation protected
Problem: More of our neighbours are going hungry for the first time. We need your help now. No one should have to choose between groceries or rent.

Here are some stories in the GTA:

“We never had it easy, but things were looking up in the beginning of 2020. Unfortunately, due to COVID, my husband and I got laid off. We’ve never been ones to ask for help, but now for the sake of our kids we are. We don’t have enough food and we’re stretching everything in our pantry as much as we can.” -K.V, 38 y. o. from Parkdale

“My family has always been messy. Ever since I was little, my dad has had problems with drinking and sometimes even gets violent. Now with all of us stuck at home it’s so much worse. I need to find a place for my mother, my little sister and I to stay, but I can’t afford both rent and groceries. We’re afraid of getting seriously hurt.” - A.D., 19 y. o. from Port Credit

Our team at Ample Labs is dedicated to empowering those of us facing homelessness with technology. As a tech non-profit, we’ve seen searches for food banks skyrocket above what’s currently available. We want to prevent people from falling into homelessness by helping them get resources before it gets to that stage.

Our goal: We're here to feed GTA’s hungry with 30,000 meals in 30 Days. Your support will help us keep up with the demand for food AND make it easier for people to find help.


The FoodFundTO mission:

Food: We’re crowdfunding to support food banks AND local initiatives with buying food, and helping more people who are hungry get fed. We'll be supporting The Mississauga Food Bank, HandUp Toronto, and North York Harvest Food Bank.

Accessibility: We're making it easier for those in need to find their closest open resources with online and offline awareness campaigns and Chalmers , an accessible digital tool available 24/7.

EVERY DOLLAR you donate helps us give ONE MEAL and IMPROVED ACCESSIBILITY to free food services.



Besides finding free food, we will also guide people towards Chalmers  which helps with shelters, crisis, clothing, mental health services and more. Last year, Chalmers helped over 10,000 Torontonians find free services.

Food is the first step, but it takes more than food to feed the needs of our neighbours in the GTA.

Support FoodFundTO to help the people of the Greater Toronto Area get their life back.
