Helping feed Canadians in need
Join us as we support Food Banks Canada with a nationwide food drive.
Summertime often brings a drop in donations to food banks, which is why we’re calling on Canadians to help families across the country during the summer. Join the Canada LifeTM Community Food Drive and help us feed 300,000 Canadians in need from coast to coast.
Supporting food security across Canada
At Canada Life, we recognize that food security is critical to the health and wellness of our communities.
Unfortunately, now more than ever, many Canadians struggle to afford food, which can impact other areas of their lives.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, so does the need for food donations. With emergency benefits winding down, food banks are seeing an increased demand for their support.
How can you help?
From July 5 to 11, you can donate physically, virtually, or in-kind to help us feed 300,000 Canadians from coast to coast.
