We need your help to raise $1,500,000 and
300,000 pounds of food by January 7.

This holiday season, give fresh food and hope to your hungry neighbours in Mississauga. Join our Holiday Food Drive and together we can raise $1,500,000 and 300,000 pounds of food!

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

In the last year, almost 26,000 hungry neighbours visited a food bank – almost 7,000 for the first time. By joining us in the fight against hunger, you will give a neighbour fresh food and peace of mind this holiday season and into the new year.

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