October Is The Month of Giving – Please Consider Hosting A Food Drive
HOST A FOOD DRIVE
Host a Food Drive
The need has never been greater, especially in south Mississauga. Our Compass statistics indicate that the number of people we serve on a weekly basis has increased by 41% so far this year over last. According to Food Bank Canada’s HungerCount 2021 report “A volatile combination of rising food prices, skyrocketing housing costs and low incomes made it an extremely challenging year for food banks across the country.” You can be part of the hunger solution. Hosting a food drive is a fun and engaging way to support your hungry neighbours in need of healthy and nutritious food. You can help fill The Compass food bank shelves so no one goes without. Food drives also help educate your neighbours about the need in your community.
The Compass Food Bank & Outreach Centre prepares and serves 1,000 meals a week to people of all ages in south Mississauga who otherwise would go hungry. Every day we add new clients to the long list of those we serve. Many are newcomers to Canada from the Ukraine and other areas around the world. We are seeing an increase in double-income families now coming through our doors who can’t make ends meet because the cost of housing, utilities, gas, food and everyday expenses have sky-rocketed. Imagine the numbers we’re feeding when it comes to single-parent families, seniors living on a fixed income that barely pays the rent, and those who are experiencing homelessness.
If you would like to host a food drive, please register your food drive now or contact us at email@example.com so we can work together to make your food drive a success.
Thank you for supporting The Compass and helping us get more food out to the people in your community who need the help.
