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.

In the last year, almost 26,000 hungry neighbours visited a food bank – almost 7,000 for the first time.

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