Host an Event

Thank you for thinking about hosting a fundraising event for The Mississauga Food Bank. From BBQs to Garage Sales, Golf Tournaments to Galas no event is too big or too small. The following tools and templates have been developed to assist you in determining what type of event you would like to host and to provide you with some tips on how to start organizing your event. Also, how we, The Mississauga Food Bank, can help you with your event. Without the support of the community, we wouldn’t be able to fight hunger and feed hope!
Note: Application must be approved by The Mississauga Food Bank prior to publicizing or holding events. The Mississauga Food Bank respects the privacy of its donors; we do not sell, rent, or trade our donor lists. The information we collect is used to process donations, keep our donors informed about the activities of The Mississauga Food Bank, and ask for their support for our mission to fight hunger and feed hope. If at any time you wish to be excluded from such contacts, call us at 905.270.5589 and we will accommodate your request.
