Eden Food for Change depends on our generous financial donors. While many people, stores and organizations donate food, it is financial donations that help us ensure that we can provide support to the community of western Mississauga.
For every $2 you donate, we can provide the food for 4 meals. When you donate just $50 you are providing approximately 25 families with enough food for dinner.
Through partnerships, we are able to leverage financial donations to support even more people. For example, for every $10 that is donated, we can buy an average of $45 worth of food for distribution through our food bank. Plus, we believe it is important to provide food bank clients with fresh food and will often purchase these items. Did you know that we often spend an average of $1,000 a month buying milk? Financial donations go a long way in providing healthier and more nutritious food for hungry families in our community.
Your regular monthly donation helps us to ensure that good food is available to needy families in our community all year long. If you would like to become a regular monthly donor, please contact our office at 905-785-3651, and ask to be set up as a monthly donor!

Volunteers are the backbone of our organization. They are involved in every aspect of our organization, including food distribution, food pickups, sorting, organizing food drives and fundraising.
Volunteers work in various aspects of running Eden Food for Change. Many volunteers assist clients in selecting food, sort and pack food donations, stock shelves, or assist with carrying food in and out of the food bank. Some volunteers register clients for our services, or work with clients to assess need and refer them to additional community services (these positions require a current agency-specific police check). Other volunteers provide a valuable service by picking up food donations from local businesses and delivering them to us. All positions are important for assisting the many people in need who use our services every month.LEARN MORE ABOUT
