Ramadan is a month when Muslims worldwide engage in a physical fast and spiritual contemplation. It is a month that centers around food, hunger, compassion, social solidarity, and sharing. It is also a month where the Food Bank needs your help!

Right now, thanks to a generous community member you can take advantage of a special matching gift opportunity in support of Give 30! Until FRIDAY, June 15th all gifts to The Mississauga Food Bank in support of Give 30 will be matched – dollar for dollar – to double your impact.


What is Give 30?

The Give 30 Movement is about caring for your neighbours and fighting hunger in our communities during the month of Ramadan. The concept of the campaign is simple: everyone, regardless of faith,  gives to the Give 30 Campaign Food Banks during Ramadan.   

For the last 6 years, The Mississauga Food Bank has partnered with Give 30 – a grassroots movement that mobilizes people of all backgrounds to fight hunger in their communities during the celebration of Ramadan. Each year, we invite generous friends like you to donate money to help the food bank purchase and distribute healthy food to hungry neighbours.

Why Does the Good Bank Need My Donation?

The Mississauga Food Bank is an organization FOR the community supported BY the community; 96% of our funding comes from generous community supporters like you. In order to achieve our vision of A Mississauga Where No One Goes Hungry, we need to work together.

Your support enables us to:

  • Purchase fresh and non-perishable food to give an adequate 7-10 day supply from each of Canada’s Food Guide food groups
  • Distribute healthy food to locations across Mississauga
  • Reach our neighbours with information about where they can get food, or with how they can support feeding their neighbours

Don’t Forget: Until Friday, every $1 you donate, will double in impact to provide food for 4 meals to a hungry neighbour in your community! Click here to donate today.
