Toronto: November 22, 2022 – Ecclesiastical Insurance Office plc is pleased to announce a new charitable partnership with Food Banks Canada, joining their movement to end hunger in Canada. To kick off this partnership, Ecclesiastical held food drives in support of local food banks in office locations across the country and ran an information session for all employees to learn more about the programs that Food Banks Canada delivers. 

“Food insecurity is a significant and growing issue in Canada,” said David Huebel, President, Ecclesiastical Insurance.  “One third of all food bank visitors are children, and we want to help them.  This is why we have partnered with Food Banks Canada to support their national After the Bell youth-focused program. Together with our employees, Ecclesiastical will help Food Banks Canada deliver more than 175,000 food packs full of healthy, child-friendly food to children across Canada next summer.”

“As part of our corporate partnership program, on a rotating basis, we select a national charity that we support. We provide funding, volunteer our time, raise awareness, and participate at events,” David continued. “Ecclesiastical is proud to protect those who enrich the lives of others and equally proud to give back to the diverse communities we serve across the country.”

“The announcement of our partnership with Ecclesiastical Insurance comes at a time when the demand for food banks is tremendous. More and more families are struggling to make ends meet and our corporate partners, like Ecclesiastical Insurance, are critical to ensuring we can get more food packs out to the children and communities that need them most each summer,” says Erin Filey-Wronecki, Chief Development and Partnerships Officer at Food Banks Canada.
