Hunger Count

Hunger Count is an annual report of socioeconomic data used to draw a portrait of hunger in Quebec, year after year. It shines a light on a disturbing problem throughout the province, to educate the public and encourage them to take action on the growing issue of hunger in Quebec.

Since 1989, Hunger Count has compiled data collected at the same time each year. These data are incorporated into a survey of all Quebec community organizations that offer food assistance services and that are members of Food Banks of Quebec.




Food Banks of Quebec contributes to the advancement of knowledge and the search for innovative solutions in the field of food assistance and security, in collaboration with several university research chairs.

The studies conducted enable us to better address the challenges of food security, improve our interventions, and offer quality support to the members of our network.
