Food is a language we all speak and understand. Every person across the globe needs food to survive and thrive. The demand for healthy and nutritious food and the other services we provide has stretched The Compass Food Bank & Outreach Centre thin. As quickly as food comes in one door, it goes out the other leaving our shelves empty again. You can make a difference in someone’s life now by donating food or making a monetary donation, if you are able.
1 in every 3 Compass clients is a child under the age of 18. The number of households we served in 2023 compared to 2022 has increased by 71%. The number of new households we served in the same period increased by 87%. We served 6,567 individuals in 2023, a jump of 63% versus 2022. The number of double-income families using The Compass for groceries has increased by 79%.
Our south Mississauga community can help feed our hungry neighbours.
We are pleased to accept non-perishable food donations at The Compass (427 Lakeshore Road East) any day, any time. Simply pull into the back parking lot and drive up to our warehouse doors (last doors on the left). It’s the big blue and white building, and the driveway entrance is off Enola Avenue. You can leave the food in the donation bin, or ring the doorbell if you need help during our business hours.
If you have a large amount to drop off please contact us to arrange a time for the delivery.
NOTE: Baby Food is ALWAYS in need.
