Notes on outputs, outcomes, and targets:

1Food Bank 2 Home rapidly expanded at the onset of the pandemic, and this year the program re-focussed efforts to prioritize serving neighbours who have short- or long-term illnesses, physical disabilities, or face other barriers. Households that were removed from the program were referred directly to their closest neighbourhood food bank. This will allow the program to grow by onboarding new households with the greatest need. Note that this number includes both program clients and emergency deliveries to households who are not officially part of the program but were in temporary urgent need.

2Client and food bank use numbers are based on Link2Feed data from across The Mississauga Food Bank network, as well as a client survey administered by staff and volunteers. The 2023 client survey was conducted in multiple languages with 369 clients over the course of two months.

3After successfully running the Community Markets program for 2 consecutive summers, our goal in future years is to offer pop-up markets in several key high-priority neighbourhoods in order to further expand service coverage throughout Mississauga.
