“Even with my wife’s part-time wages, making ends meet has been a challenge.” – James*

Every day, when we read the news, when we talk to people, or when we go out, we are surrounded by stories of someone experiencing the affects of the rising cost of living.

In 2023, the number of families using our food banks surged to an all-time high, with February and March seeing an astonishing 22% increase in demand.

In our recent Annual Report, we mentioned “death by a thousand cuts”. Make no mistake, this phrase accurately captures the alarm that we have been feeling as we witness the impact of the many challenges that are facing our clients, our neighbours and our community. This makes James’ story even more poignant.  

Working full-time as a personal support worker, and his wife working part-time due to caring for their two-year-old son and five-year-old daughter, James’ family cannot keep up with the soaring rent, gas, and grocery costs. The cost of living has just risen too high.

James shares a familiar story that we often hear from our clients. Coming to a food bank is often the last resort for parents like James, and they are so grateful for the food that donors like you help to provide.

North York Harvest has been a great resource for us,” James said.
