About Canadian Food For Children:
Founded in 1985, Canadian Food for Children (CFC) is a Christian-inspired organization that works to feed the poor. CFC reports that it delivers food to people in 18 to 22 developing countries. It also reports that for every dollar donated, CFC can provide 20 nutritious meals in the developing world. Canadian Food for Children operates a warehouse in Mississauga, Ontario where food is packaged and prepared for shipment. CFC reports that its activities include collecting and sorting donated items, packing items into containers, unloading donated items, office work and talks and supervising the youth working at the warehouse.
It is not clear from information on the charity’s website why Canadian Food for Children has chosen this model as opposed to purchasing food locally in the countries of operation and contributing to local, community-based food security.
Canadian Food For Children is a large charity, with donations of $6.8m in F2015. Its administrative costs are 2% of revenues.
