The Ontario riding where the most people per capita used food banks to help fill their fridges and pantries last year was right here in Ottawa.
Feed Ontario released an interactive map Wednesday, detailing food bank usage per provincial riding.
It found that 15 per cent of residents in Ottawa–Vanier visited a food bank in 2018 — more than 16,500 people. It was the riding with the highest per capita number of visits in the entire province.
