Thanks to YOU, the annual Spring Food Drive raised 80,178 pounds of food and $87,876!
We were overwhelmed by the number of Mississauga residents who organized school, office and community food drives to feed their hungry neighbours. These drives plus the collections taking place at local fire stations and grocery stores helped raise enough food and funds to provide 316,290 meals to those in need. The final results of 80,178 pounds of food and $87,876 far exceeded the Spring Food Drive’s goals of 75,000 pounds of food and $75,000.
“Hungry neighbours come to their neighbourhood food bank when they have no other options for feeding their families. The community’s generous response to the Spring Food Drive will not only ensure that our neighbours don’t go hungry this spring, but also brings hope to those struggling in poverty.”
-Chris Hatch, Executive Director at The Mississauga Food Bank
Food and funds donations collected through the Spring Food Drive will ensure food bank clients receive the wholesome food they need throughout the Spring and Summer months when donations decline. Thank you for fighting hunger and feeding hope.
