Do you know how much of an impact your donation makes?  How far your dollar goes?      

             What's better, monetary donation or food donation?  

Well, while this metric has been used for some time now and as a local food bank you may have your own meal metric based on your individual situation, it's a good time to re-visit.  Food Banks Canada devised a "national meals metric" for Canadian Food Banks that can easily be understood by Canadians. 

        For every $1 donated food banks are able to acquire and share 3lbs of food

or the equivalent of 3 meals.
