Million Meals Campaign

Our original goal was to provide the equivalent of one million meals to Canadians in need. As of March 2022, we met that goal, and to date we have helped over 250 organizations across the country.

Dillon launched The Million Meals Campaign in January 2021 to help combat food insecurity across Canada. The campaign supports our commitment to the United Nations Global Compact. Specifically, the Zero Hunger Sustainable Development Goal (SDG-2).

In addition to providing one million meals, we also hope to help solve some of the problems associated with the root causes of food insecurity, and in doing so, contribute to a transformation of the system for generations. To this end, pro bono consulting applications are evaluated on several factors including feasibility, impact, geographical diversity, and the ability to address the root causes of food insecurity. Our focus is on supporting not-for-profit and Indigenous organizations and communities. We invite you to explore our Million Meal Campaign Past Projects below.

In addition to our pro-bono consulting work, each Dillon office also supports a number of local food security initiatives through a combination of volunteer hours and direct cash and food donations. 

We are continuing the Million Meals Campaign through 2024.

“When we became aware of Dillon’s Million Meals Campaign, it was the desire to make a strategic impact on the roots of food insecurity in Canadian communities that aligned with our goals and caught our real interest. We were impressed with their expertise and professionalism, to be sure, but it was the authenticity of the team’s enthusiasm and excitement for our project that will remain with us, along with the encouragement to continue and build on what we started. It is nothing short of an honour to have been selected as a charter Cornerstone Project with the Dillon Million Meals Campaign. The end product, a cutting edge virtual community food asset/story map is a dream; to contribute in any real way to a global Zero Hunger initiative of this nature is inspiring. To collaborate with a knowledgeable, enthusiastic team of humane problem-solvers such as this is the real gift. We look only forward to building our projects and relationship with Dillon as we move forward.”

“We are so happy our project was chosen for the Million Meals Campaign. This toolkit was something schools had been asking for, and Dillon made it a reality. Working with Dustin and his team at Dillon was great – they were so helpful with pulling everything together and guiding the process. We are certain this toolkit will help busy NWT schools run their breakfast programs more efficiently. Thank you Dillon!”
