Food Bank

Providing monthly groceries and essential items to families in need. 

Helping feed local families in need: 

SacredHand Canada, with the help of local communities, volunteers, and organizations, fights hard to address the growing issue of food insecurity and poverty. Without access to healthy and nutritious foods the homeless population is at-risk to physical and mental health issues. With your help we are able to provide over 600 hot meals weekly and provide over 8000 groceries monthly. Here at SacredHand Canada, we make sure that all our foods are up to the highest quality standard and that it is delivered to those who need it the most.

حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ كَثِيرٍ، قَالَ‏: ‏ أَخْبَرَنَا سُفْيَانُ، عَنْ عَبْدِ الْمَلِكِ بْنِ أَبِي بَشِيرٍ، عَنْ عَبْدِ اللهِ بْنِ الْمُسَاوِرِ قَالَ‏: ‏ سَمِعْتُ ابْنَ عَبَّاسٍ يُخْبِرُ ابْنَ الزُّبَيْرِ يَقُولُ‏: ‏ سَمِعْتُ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ‏: ‏ لَيْسَ الْمُؤْمِنُ الَّذِي يَشْبَعُ وَجَارُهُ جَائِعٌ‏.‏

Ibn 'Abbas informed Ibn az-Zubayr, "I heard the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, say, 'He is not a believer whose stomach is filled while his neighbor goes hungry.'"

[Al-Adab Al-Mufrad 112]

What are the facts?

In 2017-18, 1 in 8 households in Canada was food insecure, amounting to 4.4 million people, including more than 1.2 million children living in food-insecure households.

1 in 6 Canadian children under the age of 18 is affected by household food insecurity.

Households with children led by female lone parents are especially vulnerable to food insecurity; one-third of these households are food-insecure.

Household food insecurity is the inadequate or insecure access to food due to financial constraints. Food insecurity negatively affects many Canadians each day and can severely impact their physical, mental and social health.  
No one should have to worry about what they will feed their families every day. Access to healthy and nutritious food should be a right for everyone
