That's why The Mississauga Food Bank teamed up this month with Meadowvale-based Scotts Canada Ltd., a lawn and garden products manufacturer, to distribute tomato-growing kits to people in need. Some 2,800 kits are being distributed to seven Mississauga food banks, where they'll be passed along to clients. The kits contain a 10-inch pot, a wooden stake, a package of tomato seeds, fertilizer, potting mix and instructions. Karen Stephenson, director of regulatory affairs and stakeholder relations for Scotts Canada, said it's a great feeling to give back to the community.
"It's been great. We've had a really positive reaction from almost everybody who's come through and it's just wonderful to see that we can make a positive contribution to the community," she said.
Chris Hatch, executive director of The Mississauga Food Bank, says the tomatoes are very high in nutrition. "It's highly recognizable and it can be used in many different forms of cooking. I think it's fantastic and I'm thrilled with the amount of people who have taken the pots," he said. The Mississauga Food Bank distributes 2.4 million pounds of food each year, valued at more than $6 million. read more on mississauga

“On my trip to Egypt I was given a tour of a workshop which supported impoverished women to learn a trade. They are taught how to sew and use specialized equipment for embroidery. While they are training they are paid and then hired. This very important service helps woman to save up for a dowry which then always them to choose a spouse rather than to be forced into a marriage. Their work was beautiful and there was a great sense of pride in all the women we met.”
