    Food for Life’s commitment to efficiency, transparency and integrity has been recognized once again by Canada’s charity watchdog, Charity Intelligence. Food For Life recently received the highest rating, a “four-star rating”, by Charity Intelligence (Ci) in their 2014 report, identifying Food for Life as one of the top-performing charities in Canada. Food for Life is one of only 80 charities to receive the top rating after an extensive review by Ci of more than 500 charities across Canada.

    Charity Intelligence (www.charityintelligence.ca) is a not-for-profit independent firm that conducts rigorous research of Canadian charities every year to provide an evaluation tool for potential funders. Charities are rated based on Transparency and Accountability, Need for Funding, and Operating Efficiency.

    “Charity Intelligence’s research has found charities that are exceptional. We hope Charity Intelligence’s ratings help donors get accurate, independent information in making important giving decisions” stated Kate Bahen, Managing Director of Charity Intelligence.

    “Food for Life is proud to be recognized as one of the charities receiving Charity Intelligence’s highest rating” says Chris Roberts, Food for Life Executive Director. “We rely 100% on donations and our donors need to know that we are fiscally responsible and transparent in our dealings.”
