A new report says that more people have been visiting food banks across the province more frequently, including a “concerning” number of people with full or part-time employment.

Feed Ontario’s annual hunger report — which captures food bank usage in the province, analyzes trends and provides recommendations — revealed that 510,438 individuals visited food banks across the province, more than 3,059,000 times over the past year — an increase of 8,848 more people.

And over the past three years, those with employment income who access food banks have increased by 27 per cent.
