KAF Food Bank pursues food equity and healthy food redistribution with no barriers to membership. Participants and volunteers are trained to respect one another and strive to maintain order and tolerance.
KAF Food Bank serves diverse populations without any discrimination. KAF Food Bank has increased access to nutritious foods for all members of the communities the food bank serves.
The conventional Food Security System needs to be revamped and reprogrammed to meet the contemporary challenges of food insecurity in our communities. The current system does not fully emphasize culturally appropriate healthy foods in a contextualized communal environment devoid of stigma and shame.
KAF Food Bank and Community Food Centre supports other BIPOC organizations by redistributing large quantities of healthy, culturally appropriate foods to these community organizations.
KAF Food Banking Programming focuses on contextualizing the food security programming to ensure that those who desperately need food support receive this support in a de-stigmatized and community-oriented atmosphere. In addition, KAF Food Bank BAZAAR format of food distribution makes it possible for families to receive an adequate supply of food to meet their needs of the families for a few days.
KAF FOOD BANK – FOOD RESCUE OPERATIONS AND ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
KAF Food Bank partners with various food rescue and food recovery organizations in major cities of Canada, especially in British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario, to rescue and redistribute food items to families that need them. It limits food waste and promotes circular food recovery and repurposing. KAF Food Bank rescues over 465,000 pounds of food worth over $317,000 every year while averting over 375,000 pounds of Green House Gas (GHG).
KAF FOOD BANK – FOOD EQUITY AND SOCIAL JUSTICE!
Moving Beyond Emergency Food Distribution – In Programming, Strategic Planning, And Messaging
Among the BIPOC communities KAF Food Bank serves, emergency food distribution only offers temporary relief to an underlying socio-economic inequity that keeps the majority of the BIPOC families unemployed or underemployed. Therefore, KAF’s programming includes capacity building and skills training and advocating for employment equity.
Unfortunately, BIPOC Charities such as KAF face a considerable obstacle in expanding their social purpose programming. The most critical one is the lack of willingness and dedication by funders to support BIPOC Charities, another sign of discrimination and marginalization of BIPOC-led social purpose organizations. Lack of sustainable funding makes it challenging to have a long-term strategic planning and comprehensive programming in a culturally appropriate format
KAF FOOD BANK AND VOLUNTEERISM – Revisiting And Reinvigorating BIPOC Community Leadership Through Volunteer Programs
Volunteerism drives all the activities of KAF Food Bank. KAF has volunteers from the BIPOC communities made up of individuals with various skills and experiences, mostly Youth, Seniors, Women and Students. To run KAF’s massive food distribution programming requires the complete dedication of our volunteers.
