Vital Conversations

Health and Food Security in Mississauga

Join Us: Insecurities? We all have them. But food should not be one of them. Exploring the realities and impacts of food insecurity in Mississauga.

According to Mississauga Food Bank's "The Face of Hunger in Mississauga Annual Impact Report 2022", 45% of food bank users go without food for at least one meal each month and 46% of food bank users have gone into debt to buy food.

Join us for an invigorating discussion with advocates from local organizations on the food security challenge in Mississauga and how we can create tangible solutions to reduce food insecurity and its long-term health impacts.
