The Mississauga Food Bank (formerly Foodpath) was founded by Streetsville United Church, Solel Congregation, and the Baha’i Community of Mississauga, Ontario. It opened its doors in April 1986 as a community project in response to a 1985 Peel Social Services study.
In 1990, the food bank was serving approximately 18 families a day. During the 90s, Mississauga experienced unprecedented growth, becoming the sixth largest city in Canada. Client numbers doubled and then tripled. The Mississauga Food Bank food programs currently record over 65,000 client visits each month.
Today, The Mississauga Food Bank annually distributes over 1.95 million pounds of donated food through its growing network of food programs.
The Mississauga Food Bank is a proud member of the Ontario Association of Food Banks and an affiliate member of Food Banks Canada.
