June 2022 – The Compass Food Bank
Members of the 100 Women Who Care Mississauga Steering Team gathered on the morning of September 1st to get a tour of The Compass Food Bank before presenting our collective donation of $8500.
A message from Melinda Prain, Communications and Fundraising Manager
“Thanks to the generosity of 100 Women Who Care Mississauga, The Compass Food Bank & Outreach Centre was able to provide summer snack kits to an average of 324 school-aged children per week. Each kid’s pack included healthy snacks such as cheese strings, yogurt, fresh fruit and vegetables, granola bars, and more. The donation also enabled us to provide families whose kids are usually part of a school meal program with nutritious food for breakfasts and lunches. 100 Women Who Care Mississauga – you made a big difference in a lot of families’ lives over the summer.”
