Who's Hungry, A Tale of Three Cities: 2013 profile of Hunger in the GTA


The basis of this report, Daily Bread’s annual Who’s Hungry survey, gives us a unique glimpse into hunger in Toronto. The survey, unique of its kind in Canada, consists of approximately 100 survey volunteers conducting one-on-one interviews with over 1700 people accessing food banks through the GTA. This process allows us to get behind the numbers and get the complete story of who needs to access food banks and why. While we see a diverse group of people, we see similarities of who they are: people transitioning to a new country, an aging demographic contending with a disability or illness, and people simply struggling with the rising costs of basic needs (such as food) regardless of whether their income comes from social assistance or from employment.
