We need your help to raise $1,700,000 and
450,000 pounds of food by January 6.

This holiday season, give fresh food and hope to your hungry neighbours in Mississauga
by supporting Mayor Crombie’s 2022 Holiday Food Drive.

46% of food bank users in Mississauga have gone into debt to buy food. For these vulnerable neighbours, the rising cost of living means they will have to choose between buying food and paying for other necessities.

With your help, we can ensure that everyone in Mississauga has healthy
and appropriate food to share around their holiday table.

Give the gift of food and hope this holiday season and feed your hungry neighbours today!
