Do you need help with food?
If you are living in Mississauga within the postal codes L5E, L5G, L5H or L5J and are in need of food for yourself and/or your family we can help on a weekly basis.
We do not turn away anyone in need. We provide one time emergency food supplies and other assistance to those outside our area, and can help with referrals to ongoing sources of support. You can also check Mississauga Food Bank to see where your closest food bank is or call 211 for assistance.
Our food bank is open Monday from 12-7:30 pm, and Wednesday and Friday from 10-5 pm. We have made modifications due to COVID-19 to keep everyone safe. Instead of operating our food bank market, clients book an arrival time, and place an order online for a custom hamper at www.TheCompass.ca (call 905-274-9309 if you can't order online). If you don't place an order we will have a standard prepared hamper ready for you on arrival that includes items like frozen protein and fresh produce.
What You Will Receive
You will take home 2-3 days of food for you and your family each week. We stock canned food, dry foods, fresh produce, dairy, eggs and a selection of frozen food including meat. We offer halal options, and a variety of household items like dish and laundry detergent, and baby items like diapers.
Your First Visit
Simply visit during food distribution hours, arriving at least 30 minutes before we close. You will leave with food that same day. Please bring ID for each person in your family and something that shows your address. If you don’t have it we can still help, but we ask you to bring it on your next visit.
