Rabba Fine Foods renews its partnership with The Mississauga Food Bank for 2019

MISSISSAUGA, Ont., November 28, 2018 – Rabba Fine Foods, the GTA’s neighbourhood market, has renewed its partnership with The Mississauga Food Bank for another year. The announcement was made by Jack Rabba at the launch of Mayor Crombie’s Holiday Food Drive on November 24, at Light Up the Square 2018 at Celebration Square. 

“During the holiday season, it’s particularly important to take stock of the state of our neighbourhoods and those in need in our communities,” says Jack Rabba, CEO and founder of Rabba Fine Foods. “Whether it’s through food and monetary donations, or lending a helping hand in the community, everyone should remember those less fortunate and give back, especially companies.”

 Rabba’s partnership with the food bank extends back to 2007 and will now continue into 2019. Rabba is one of the top sponsors of the organization, and will proudly provide support for the food bank’s upcoming spring and Thanksgiving campaigns. 

Jack Rabba and Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie join Chris Hatch, executive director of The Mississauga Food Bank, on a visit of the food bank. On Nov. 28, 2018, it was announced that Rabba Fine Foods would renew its partnership with The Mississauga Food Bank for 2019.

“It’s our vision to create a Mississauga where no one goes hungry,” says JP McMillan, Director of Development at The Mississauga Food Bank. “We’re grateful for partners like Rabba as we work to achieve this vision. Thanks to the support they continue to provide, hungry neighbours across our city will now have access to healthy, nutritious meals when they need them most.  We look forward to continuing our partnership with Rabba as we fight hunger in our community together.”

The community can support Mayor Crombie’s Holiday Food Drive by: 

  • Donating a bag of food at a local fire hall, grocery store or The Mississauga Food Bank, and challenging their social network to do the same.
  • Making a financial donation to The Mississauga Food Bank. Every $1 donated provides two meals to a neighbour in need. 
  • Running a food drive or fundraiser in their community group or place of worship.
