A.C.F. act as the direct source by which needy children and their families in Peel municipality, Canada get donated food and other basic household items

Mission
A.C.F.
Food Bank is based on the simple concept that some children and people are hungry while others have an abundance of food. Donated food from the community is collected by the food bank and distributed through a network of social services agencies. The agencies that receive this food serve tens of thousands of men,  congregate meals for women and children every day through food boxes.

The Food Bank also offers a variety of services to the community in the form of food boxes delivered to the homeless and handicapped youth, food distributions in low-income areas as well as a program that offers food boxes at an affordable cost to those experiencing hardship.

Programs
A.C.F. Food Bank collects and distributes food to partner agencies. The Food Bank receives food from various sources including grocery stores, grocery suppliers, growers, produce warehouses, Food Drives and food donations from corporate and individual supporters. Partner agencies receive food in the form of non-perishable items in order to provide congregate meals or stock a food pantry. Agencies also receive Emergency Food Boxes and Emergency baby Boxes filled with a three-day supply of food for their recipients.

Other services and programs include: site distributions where food is disseminated amongst members of a community through churches or community centres, food boxes delivered to the homebound elderly parent with children and handicapped, a program that allows people throughout the community to stretch their dollars and purchase a food box from the Food Bank, and a training program that teaches culinary skills to low-income people.
