CCBR typically has 15-20 ongoing projects and has completed over 450 projects since 1982. Each project is guided by our commitment to impacting social change in practical and powerful ways. We conduct research with people not on people, cultivating respect with communities at every step of the process.

    Projects can be searched for using words from the project title or using the service area, theme, or date range for the project. You can also type 'Service Area' or 'Theme' into the search bar to get a list of options in each of these fields.

    CCBR worked with the Senior Leadership of FBC to develop a Theory of Change guided by stakeholders across Canada. This Theory of Change sets the stage for FBC to evaluate its activities. It also has strategic implications for the network of provincial associations with which Food Banks collaborates, and over 4,750 affiliate food banks.

    The project depended on a jointly developed stakeholder engagement strategy and considered the geographic diversity of food banks and their varying sizes. The process was centrally concerned with the perspectives of food bank users and peer researchers, northern and Indigenous community partners, and Francophone and disability action groups. CCBR was also informed by the insights of sector leaders, funders, and comparative international models. Two cycles of data collection were implemented to ensure that participants were able to verify and refine the Theory of Change, to better ensure its adoption.
