High rents across Ontario, especially in Toronto, are driving more single people to use food banks, according to a new report from the Ontario Association of Food Banks (OAFB).

About 49 per cent of the people who used food banks in 2016/2017 were single, compared to 45 per cent the year before, the report says. Almost all people using food banks are renters (90 per cent), according to the recently published “Hunger Report.”
