|905-270-5589||The Mississauga Food Bank is the largest food distribution program in Mississauga, Ontario supporting over 65,000 clients each month through 154 community food programs, including the city’s seven neighbourhood food banks. We call this the “hub and spoke” operating model.
The Mississauga Food Bank sources, warehouses, and distributes 1.7 million pounds of food each year through its growing network of partner agencies. Food is sourced through corporate and individual donations, sponsorships, and through our collaborative membership with the Ontario Association of Food Banks and Food Banks Canada.
All funding for The Mississauga Food Bank’s operations is received from generous individuals, corporations, service clubs and groups, foundations, the Region of Pell, the Ontario Trillium Foundation and 3rd party events hosted on our behalf.
To serve our clients fairly and efficiently, The Mississauga Food Bank has divided the city into a network of service delivery areas corresponding to postal codes. Clients are assigned to a food bank based on the postal code of their current residency. These food banks are autonomous charitable organizations led by staff and volunteers who pick up food, stock shelves and support clients by distributing food and providing personal advocacy services.
The Mississauga Food Bank provides 50 to 95% of their food requirements (the balance coming from local food drive initiatives) along with support in the areas of client relations, fundraising, transportation and planning.
This system allows The Mississauga Food Bank to focus on what we do best - sourcing, managing and distributing food, and in turn allows our member agency food banks to focus on what they do best – serving clients.
Through this system we will be able to continue fighting hunger and feeding hope for the 17% of Mississauga’s population who live in poverty.
