Grow A Row! Donate Your Fresh Produce To The Seva Food Bank
Are you’re getting ready to plant your garden this summer? Please consider planting a row for hungry families served by the Seva Food Bank. We welcome all donations of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Anyone in the community that grow their own vegetable gardens.
Participation is easy! Dedicate a row of your garden to the Seva Food Bank and donate the fresh produce from that row.
Produce can be prohibitively expensive for families with limited incomes, but is essential for a healthy diet. Fresh veggies and fruits are highly prized items at the Seva Food Bank and are quickly distributed to families in need. Produce provided from home gardens is so much fresher than any other produce we receive, that it will be distributed very quickly.
There is no such thing as too much produce at the food bank. Our food bank clients are very appreciative of the donations.
What To Grow?
You can plant and grow whatever you want. However long lasting root vegetables like carrots, beets and potatoes are best; however, any produce items that can be easily handled and stored, such as cabbage, peas, beans, tomatoes, radishes, parsnips, sweet peppers, summer squash, apples, and pears are welcome.
The Seva Food Bank is located at 3413 Wolfedale Rd (Unit 10), Mississauga, ON, L5C 1V8.
Seva Food Bank takes donations Wednesday evenings between 5:30 and 8:30 pm and Sundays between 12 and 5 pm. To schedule donations outside of this time, call 905-361-SEVA (7382).
