We recognize that if you need a food bank, you are likely experiencing challenges in your life. Our neighbourhood food banks create a welcoming environment for all. In order to make your visit a positive experience, neighbourhood food bank staff and volunteers create an environment of mutual respect and caring for all food bank clients.
You can visit your local food bank during the hours listed. Providing proof of Mississauga address and identification for members in the household is helpful, but not required.
You may be wondering:
What kind of food will I receive?
You will receive 7+ days of nutritious food on each visit. This will include both canned/packaged food and fresh food like milk, fresh produce, vegetables, or meat.
Will I get to choose what kind of food I receive?
We try to give some choices in the food provided based on Canada’s Food Guide. While all supplies are not available every day, we do our best to provide the same things to all clients on each visit.
Will it be embarrassing to come to a food bank?
All clients are treated with dignity and respect. We speak to you privately and confidentially regarding your financial and personal situation. People from all different walks of life use a food bank, so don’t worry that you and your family will be put in an embarrassing situation.
