This Thanksgiving, be the reason why everyone has access to healthy food. Join us for Mayor Crombie’s 2021 Thanksgiving Food Drive and together we can raise $400,000 and 200,000 pounds of food this Thanksgiving!

This year, more than any other year, is a time to reflect and give thanks for making it through one of the toughest years together as a community. In the last year, over 25,800 hungry neighbours visited a food bank – over 6,800 for the first time.

For every dollar donated, The Mississauga Food Bank will be able to provide nutritious and appropriate food for 2 meals for a hungry neighbour in need through our network of over 50 agencies. Help us continue to set the table and feed more hungry children, seniors, families, and neighbours this Thanksgiving.
