History | The Mississauga Food Bank


The Mississauga Food Bank (formerly Foodpath) was founded by Streetsville United Church, Solel Congregation, and the Baha’i Community of Mississauga, Ontario. It became incorporated in March 1986 and opened its doors the following month 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.

Today, The Mississauga Food Bank provides food for 2.2 million meals each year through its network of member agencies.

The Mississauga Food Bank is a proud member of the Ontario Association of Food Banks and an affiliate member of Food Banks Canada.
