The Largest donation at Breakfast with Santa fundraiser in Mississauga

(Mississauga, ON) – The community came together at the 5th Annual Breakfast With Santa fundraiser in support of Eden Food for Change (EFFC) on Saturday December 3, 2022 to experience one-of-a kind festive
fun with food, friends, music and Santa.

This initiative was a collaboration with Peel First Responders, Small Businesses, Local Artists, Community

Groups, Service Organizations, Media, and concerned Citizens. Santa was accompanied by Police, Fire, Paramedics, and volunteers to welcome guests in the drive-thru and dine-in program. Visitors received gourmet meals as they enjoyed the sounds of the season performed live by local musicians. Kids always eat
free and 100% of proceeds benefit Eden Food For Change.
“The goal of this fundraiser is about connecting people and community helping community” says Imran Hasan, Vice-President, Eden Food for Change.
“Public safety and community well-being is a shared responsibility and food banks play a key role in building resilience. Mississauga is one of the most culturally diverse communities in Canada and our board, staff and programs reflect the people we serve.”

“We are a local food centre that provides access to fresh, healthy, and nutritious ingredients” says Peter
Costello Executive Director, Eden Food For Change. “EFFC also provides education and training at our inhouse learning kitchen. Members benefit by learning how to cook great healthy food. Our culinary skills
programs provide real world training to individuals looking for careers in the food service industry. Our aim is to give a hand up to community in need and help provide a sustainable future.”

Our Cause

Eden Food For Change is the local food centre serving the Mississauga community in need through access to fresh and nutritious food. Eden Food For Change also provides education and training through an in-house learning kitchen. Members benefit from hands-on experience preparing healthy meals and gaining transferable skills in preparation for employment readiness.

Our History

The Streetsville Christmas Breakfast was founded in 2018 by local resident and entrepreneur (Imran Hasan, President at TSOC – Transglobal Systems Of Canada) to help raise awareness and funds for his local Mississauga Food Centre, Eden Food For Change.

The original goal was to raise ($2,000) by inviting (100) concerned citizens and community stakeholders to participate in a buffet dining experience in exchange for a ($20) donation. Local businesses (Drake, A Firkin Pub + Coffee Culture) offered the venue and gourmet refreshments to ensure a ($0) cost event and (100%) of the proceeds would benefit the charity.

The news of this collaboration reached the attention of a local financial institution (Meridian Credit Union) who generously offered to match the ($2,000) fundraising goal. The inaugural event was held (Saturday, December 08 2018) and the outcome exceeded expectations by raising ($5,100). A hybrid model was introduced in 2021 which served (827) DRIVE-THRU + (240) DINE-IN meals raising more than ($48,100).

This annual event continues to evolve under the guidance of health professionals at Region of Peel despite the COVID-19 challenges. The success of this initiative is due to the continued support from First Responders, Small Businesses, Service Organizations, Local Musicians, Volunteers, and the Public. We are grateful to our community partners and concerned citizens for their generosity and support.
