Mississauga Rotary Clubs and the Mississauga Food Bank are joining forces to fight hunger in Mississauga.
On a brisk February day, Mississauga Rotarians pose in front of a Mississauga Food Bank truck to present Executive Director Chris Hatch a cheque for $20,000 to fight hunger in Mississauga.
“It would be impossible to achieve our vision of a Mississauga where no one goes hungry without partners like the Rotary Clubs of Mississauga,“ says Chris Hatch, executive director of The Mississauga Food Bank. “This partnership enables us to provide wholesome food to hungry families, children and seniors in every corner of our city.”
While individual Rotary Clubs have been involved with the Mississauga Food Bank in the past, this is the first time that all nine Mississauga Clubs have joined forces to contribute as one.
“The Rotary Clubs of Mississauga are untied in our commitment to build a stronger Mississauga where no neighbour goes hungry,” said Kathy May, President of the Rotary Club of Mississauga Meadowvale.
The donation will go towards providing fresh vegetables and also the logistics of picking up and delivering food donations to neighbourhood food banks and pantry’s in every area of Mississauga.
