The Mississauga Food Bank is now Food Banks Mississauga! As a network leader of over 60 agency members providing food to neighbours facing food insecurity in Mississauga, this new name better reflects their leadership position and how their work goes beyond just one organization. Food Banks Mississauga is the hub that serves all of Mississauga through its network.
“How we support our neighbours facing food insecurity has not changed. We’re still doing the same critical work we’ve always done, helping our neighbours get the food and support they need to live full, happy, and healthy lives,” said Meghan Nicholls, CEO of Food Banks Mississauga. “Our new name more accurately reflects how our work has evolved as the need in our community grows, and more folks face food insecurity as a result of poverty. We now provide food to 82% more food bank users compared to four years ago, pre-pandemic.”
As the leader in the food security space, Food Banks Mississauga not only provides food and resources to support neighbours who are facing food insecurity now, but they also advocate for long-term, systemic change to address the root cause of food insecurity – poverty.
