In the spirit of giving back to the Mississauga community, SNF held a spring food drive to support the Mississauga Food Bank. We are pleased to report that the food drive was a tremendous success! SNF collected 40 grocery bags of food equivalent to 256 pounds of food!
As well, on March 30, 2016, several members of SNF, including lawyers, law clerks and legal assistants, volunteered their time at the Mississauga Food Bank to help feed those in need in our community. Through our efficient teamwork, we were able to sort food equivalent to 3,389 meals!
Needless to say, our volunteer experience was thoroughly rewarding. Ingrid Heinrichs Pauls from the Mississauga Food Bank welcomed us to the warehouse and explained that the food bank relies heavily on food and monetary donations as well as volunteers from the community to sort and deliver food to various local food banks and shelters. It was a real eye opener for us to witness the scope and magnitude of the work performed by the Mississauga Food Bank. Unfortunately, in our community where 15% of residents and 1 in 5 children live in poverty, the work of the Mississauga Food Bank continues to be essential.
We wish to thank all of our staff who made the food drive and volunteer event a complete success! For more information on the Mississauga Food Bank or to volunteer, please visit their website at: Mississauga Food Bank.
