This month, we want to talk to you about “what’s for dinner”. We know that everyone wants to feed their families the healthiest food possible, even those who use a food bank. And we all know that healthy food is fresh food – fruit, vegetables, protein, milk. But we don’t always know how many people are in need or how we can help..
Did you know that over 110,000 of our neighbours in Mississauga are living in poverty, struggling to make ends meet? In order to keep their families healthy, these neighbours turn to the food bank to stretch their grocery budget and receive nutritious food.
So this month, we’re inviting you to put yourself in the shoes of the families in our community who are struggling. We’re asking you to think about what you would want to feed your family if you were to fall on hard times. We invite you to engage with us, ask questions, and learn about the different projects and programs that focus on health and nutrition for food bank clients! One of these exciting projects is something that we’re very proud of…
