FCC Drive Away Hunger $1M Match Program

Farm Credit Canada (FCC) is marking 20 years of Drive Away Hunger by announcing that it will match up to $1 million in new donations to food security agencies in Canada.

Drive Away Hunger has brought the agriculture and food industry together to support food banks and food security programs. Last year, it raised a record 40 million meals and FCC hopes to inspire an even bigger impact this year.

FCC’s match will be shared by Food Banks Canada and Second Harvest Canada who will direct the funding to underserved rural and remote areas in need of support. 29% of Canada’s food banks are in rural and remote communities, where food can be more expensive and difficult to access.

Donations can come in the form of cash or food, it all makes a difference. Nearly 20% of Canadian's get their food from charitable organizations like food banks. Through the program, donors in the industry can get connected with charitable food security agencies in hopes of creating long-term, sustainable relationships.

Cash and food donations can be made online at
