Who does the 12 Days of Giving benefit?

By participating in our 12 Days of Giving, you will ensure that everyone in Mississauga has healthy and appropriate food to share around their holiday table.

46% of food bank users in Mississauga have gone into debt to buy food. For these vulnerable neighbours, the rising cost of living means they will have to choose between buying food and paying for other necessities.

By joining us in the fight against hunger, you will give a neighbour peace of mind and hope for the future.
