Last year, 85% of all food distributed by The Mississauga Food Bank was donated by generous people like you!

It takes all of us to feed our hungry neighbours.

What You Need To Know

Anyone can contribute food to feed their hungry neighbours!

If you have a donation of non-perishable food for The Mississauga Food Bank, you can drop it off at The Mississauga Food Bank, your local fire hall, or select grocery stores throughout the city with collection bins.

To avoid waste or The Mississauga Food Bank rejecting your donation, please refrain from donating items past their expiry date, vitamins or over the counter medications (eg. Tylenol, cold medicine, etc.), home baked goods, or food prepared in a home environment (such as personally wrapped meats, opened food items, or food not in its original container/packaging).
