Improving human and planetary health through food

About the Foundation

The Arrell Family Foundation supports a wide array of projects in our areas of focus, from research to capacity building, bricks and mortar, convening and policy advocacy. We also co-create projects and programs with grantees and partners, both private and public, often with the goal of getting the government to ultimately fund on an ongoing basis.

Making a difference in the community

The majority of our grants and investments are in the areas of food research, food security and sustainability and food policy across Canada. We also support select hospitals in Toronto and surrounding areas, mental health initiatives, innovative research,  indigenous reconciliation and Cystic Fibrosis.

Our Grant Process

The Arrell Family Foundation identifies organizations and projects to support through an independent due diligence process and does not generally accept proposals.
