Who We Are

The Grocery Foundation began over 35 years ago when a handful of Ontario grocery leaders decided it was time for their industry to make a meaningful difference in the lives of Ontario children who needed a hand-up in life.

Out of that small group of retailers, manufacturers and food brokers grew an industry-wide charitable foundation called The Grocery Foundation. Since 1979, The Grocery Foundation has raised in excess of $85 million to provide a better life for our challenged children, and to answer many other community needs.
