The Seva Food Bank provides safe, nutritious and culturally-appropriate food to low-income families living in seven postal codes across Mississauga. We also coordinate a wide range of programs that help our clients address the causes and consequences of hunger and poverty.

We operate from two locations in Mississauga (Wolfedale Rd and Slough St). These locations are hubs of energy and collaboration for the community.
