WE ARE OPEN and remain committed to serving the families and individuals facing hunger in our community.

Get Food

Are you having trouble putting food on the table? If you are hungry and have a postal code that starts with L5L, L5M or L5N, we can help. You can use our Food Bank services once a month to receive 7 to 10 days of nutritionally balanced food, depending on the supplies available.

The amount of food you will receive is based on your family size. If you are in an extreme emergency situation you may be able to obtain food twice a month for a short period of time.

If you live outside of our service area, but are a resident of Peel Region, please visit Peel Region Food Banks to see which food bank is closest to you. If you live in Halton Region, you can find the list of available food banks here

What to Expect?

Welcome to Eden Food for Change! Our goal is to provide you with access to good food in a dignified, respectful manner.

On your first visit, please let the greeter know that you are new to the food bank. They will arrange for you to meet with one of our advocates who will register you and your household.

The advocate will also be able to connect you to other resources in the Mississauga area that may be of help to you. You may ask to speak with an advocate at any time if you need additional information/support.

What Do I Need To Register?

To register for the food bank please come within the first hour of the shift. This makes sure we have enough time to complete the registration process and provide you with all of the information you need.

Please ensure that you bring the following information with you:

  • Identification for everyone in your household including children. This can be a driver’s license, birth certificate, passport, or health card
  • Proof of address – a utility bill, rental agreement or driver’s license with your current address is all you need for this.

The advocate will complete your registration, explain how our food bank works and give you a member card. You will need your member card each time you visit.

Once you have registered, you will be provided with hampers of non-perishable and perishable food based on the size of your household, taking into account any special dietary needs/restrictions that were identified in the registration process.

  • The type of food you receive may vary from month to month based on what is available to the food bank.

If possible, you should arrange to have personal transportation to help you get your food home. Please let the volunteers know if you are walking or travelling by bus. In that case, you will need to bring bags and some way to carry all of your food. A bundle buggy or cart would be a good option.

Area we serve

Eden Food for Change primarily serves western Mississauga.

We serve people who live in the postal code areas starting with L5L, L5M and L5N. The number of people who need help putting groceries on the table has definitely increased over our history. Click on these maps to see how poverty has increased in our community over the past few decades. In the ‘80s we were decidedly middle-class, the map from 2010 will show you that times have definitely changed.

Our volunteers, corporate and community partners engage with us from all over Mississauga.

Whether they are sorting food in one of our locations, preparing food in our community kitchen or collecting food from local friends, families or grocery stores, our community is passionate and generous.

In 2018 we served an average of 467 households every month, and distributed a total of almost 500,000 lbs of food, 50% of which was fresh food.
