Mayor's City-Wide Thanksgiving Drive
Show your gratitude by giving back
Sept 11 - Oct 15, 2023
Join the Mayor’s City-Wide Thanksgiving Drive to provide healthy and appropriate food to neighbours facing food insecurity across Mississauga.
Help us raise $1 million
With your gift, we can source and purchase fresh and frozen food such as dairy, meat, grains and fruit and vegetables in bulk and at prices lower than retail.
There are more ways for you to support neighbours in need this Thanksgiving!

- Join the Mayor's Corporate & Community Challenge!
You’re invited to participate in a special city-wide drive in support of Food Banks Mississauga taking place from September 11 to October 15, 2023. Mississauga based companies and community groups participating in this year’s challenge will compete against each other to raise the most funds for Food Banks Mississauga. There will be one top corporate award and one top community group that will be recognized for their funds raised.
- Join us at local grocery stores and Square One!
Our team of volunteers will be at select grocery stores and Square One throughout September and October to collect monetary donations and our most needed food and personal care items. Get all the details on where to find us around the city on our event listing.
- Spread the word (downloadable resources)
- Host an In-Person Food Drive
Organize a food drive to collect our urgently and most needed items to support your neighbours in need! It’s a great way to show your gratitude this Thanksgiving with your loved ones, neighbours, co-workers, and school or classroom! While we can do the most with your monetary donations and make every dollar stretch, we happily welcome your donations of shelf-stable food and personal care products. You can drop off donations at our warehouse (4544 Eastgate Parkway) or at any local Mississauga fire station. (Please note, fire station #102 is closed for renovation. Do not drop off donations there.)
