ABOUT EDEN

Eden Food for Change works to be a place where everyone in western Mississauga can be a part of a community focused on good food. Through our food bank we provide access to nutritionally balanced groceries. Our kitchen programs teach people the skills and knowledge to provide healthy meals.

We also seek to provide opportunities for individuals and organizations to help build a stronger community – with a focus on food – because who doesn’t love good food.
Eden Food for Change – Good Food For All!

Eden Food For Change is announcing that Bill Crawford is no longer our Executive Director. We thank Bill for his dedication to building our organization over the past seven years and wish him well in his future endeavors. Bill will continue to lead this year's Riders Against Hunger ride. Bill has written:

"I am proud of the work that we were able to accomplish, as a team, over the last seven years to transition Eden Food for Change from just a food bank to a multi-service organization responding to a variety of food needs in our community. This was accomplished not only by starting a fresh food focus in food bank programs but also in building the learning kitchen, developing the fresh produce box program and engaging the wider community in good food activities including the farmer's market. In this way were able to meet the food needs of hungry families today and provide them additional skills and resources so they would no longer need the food bank tomorrow. This was my mandate coming on as Executive Director seven years ago - transform the organization beyond a short term response to hunger toward a more permanent, sustainable approach to hunger and poverty in our community. Good Food for All!

My appreciation goes out to all the board members, staff, volunteers, food bank families and members of the wider community including our donors and major funders who supported me in this transformative work over the years. To you all I say, Thank you!

I will be continuing on, as a volunteer, in my role of chair of the planning group for Riders Against Hunger the motorcycle charity ride in support of Eden Food for Change. For the last six years, the ride has brought in significant funds in support of food bank programs. The ride will go on as planned for this year."
