What is really worrisome, according to Daily Bread's executive director Gayle Nyberg, is the ever increasing role the food bank plays in feeding the working people of Toronto.
"The role of the food bank in Toronto has absolutely changed," she said.
The report found that food bank use in the area has risen 79 per cent since 1995 and, as Nyberg explained, many more people using food banks are working.
Nyberg believes another problem facing the working poor is the high cost of apartments in the city."The money people are earning goes towards rent," she said.

Donations were about 15% lower than at the same time last year, but food bank executive director Gayle Nyberg was hopeful post-holiday food and cash gifts will pick up. The campaign began Sept. 26 and ends Oct. 17.
"The last week is typically a good week," she said after teams of volunteers finished for the day around 2 p.m.
"Once this election is over, I'm sure they'll pay attention again," she said of donors.
The tally when staff and volunteers left was 122,900 kilos in food gifts, plus $269,000 cash, Nyberg said.
"This is good, but still a long way to go," she said.
This year's goal is 226,800 kilos of food and $500,000 in cash, Nyberg said.
Always worrying about a decline in donations -- especially during economic turmoil -- she said "usage has increased sustantially. There has been a 7.4% jump in clients who rely on the Toronto Daily Bread Food Bank since last year.
Nyberg said government assistance is inadequate because the average food bank client pays 77% of their income in rent.
As the campaign winds up, Nyberg said food in short supply includes baby formula, cans of fish, meat, vegetables, fruit, pasta, pasta sauce and rice.
