BigSteelBox London & Kitchener Provide Mobile Storage to Eden Food for Change
We’re proud to announce a new sponsorship for our London and Kitchener, Ontario, BigSteelBox Stores! If you’ve passed by the Lisgar GO Train Station near Mississauga recently, you may have noticed a BigSteelBox in the parking lot. This storage container was donated to Eden Food for Change to store food donations and items needed weekly for their new Farmers’ Market.
Eden Food for Change has been serving hungry people in western Mississauga for 25 years. This amazing organization seeks to live out their vision of “Good Food For All” through three service areas: Food Access, Food Skills and Community Engagement.
They help serve approximately 400 families each month through their food bank, which provides non-perishable food and fresh food, as well as advocacy support. Their Learning Kitchen offers cooking classes to teach people how to make healthy, nutritious meals on a limited budget. They also run a Fresh Produce Box program, which provides affordable fruits and vegetables to anyone in the community.
This year, Eden Food for Change has introduced a Farmers’ Market to help support the local growing community and improve access for residents of western Mississauga to local produce. Their Farmers’ Market will be held every Sunday at the Lisgar GO Station from 9am - 3pm from now until November 1, 2015.
