The Deacon’s Cupboard is an ecumenical food agency that serves those in need in our area. It is a joint venture of five congregations, Erin Mills United, St. Peter’s Erindale Anglican, St. Thomas a Becket Anglican, Erindale United, and Erindale Presbyterian. These five churches provide food, money and volunteers to the Cupboard, which is housed in St. Peter’s and is open every Wednesday from 9:30 am to 1:00 pm and the last Monday night of every month. As well as distributing food to our guests our volunteers support them with the help of registered nurses and dieticians. In addition to our donated food we also receive food from the Mississauga Food Bank.
The Cupboard has been in operation since 2003 and has assisted over 1300 families. We are proud of the fact that all the money donated goes directly to the purchase of food; we have no paid helpers.
