St. Joseph's Community Kitchen

The Challenge

Over 112,000 people in Mississauga live below the poverty line. When asked why they require a food bank, more than 1 in 5 reported challenges with employment, such as low wages, not enough hours, no benefits, delayed wages, or a recent lost job.

Our Solution

In 2011, Anba Abraam Charity partnered with the Region of Peel to launch the Community Kitchen Program (CKP). The community kitchen of St. Joseph is a division of the St. Mary’s food Bank. We address the needs of marginalized community members and continuously look for ways to meet the challenging needs of our city in response to poverty and hunger.
