You must register your event at the bottom of this page.
Make sure you read our Food Drive/Fundraiser Guidelines that were created to help organizers maintain The Mississauga Food Bank’s values and mission.
Use your imagination when it comes to ideas! Feel free to use your own ideas, or take a look at some of our suggestions.
*Please Note: We are desperately in need of Canned Fruit/Veg and Canned Meat (fish, salmon, tuna, chicken, etc). Perhaps you can encourage your friends, family and coworkers to donate these most need items.*
The ‘when’ and ‘where’ is the easy part of an event, following through is the fun part!
- Challenge your school, colleagues or community to help reach a specific weight or number of bins filled.
- Generating 100% participation is a goal.
- If you’re organizing a corporate event, find out if your company will match gifts.
- We can lend you food collection boxes that hold 250-300 lbs. Or collect food in your own containers or boxes.
- We can only pick up collections greater than 500 lbs (about 50 grocery bags), but we appreciate donations being dropped off.
- Drop donations at a fire station. Financial donations CANNOT be dropped at fire stations, they should be brought to our warehouse.

Do you want to take your fundraiser or food drive to the next level? Consider fundraising online! Online donations are much easier to manage than heavy cans and boxes and for every $1 you raise, we can distribute food for 2 meals!
