Mississauga Food Bank grows own aquaponic produce

AquaGrow Farms is a sustainable aquaponics farm in the warehouse at The Mississauga Food Bank. It was created to provide an additional source of healthy greens and protein for their hungry neighbours and educate people about where their food may have come from and introduce them to the idea of sustainable “urban agriculture”. The farm draws attention to the need for fresh food by those who live in poverty in Mississauga.



AquaGrow Farms has three grow beds and two fish tanks that will produce approximately 645 servings of fish and 10,800 servings of greens each year. All of the healthy greens and protein-rich fish we grow are distributed to their member agencies across Mississauga. From there they are given to hungry members of their community who otherwise would have limited access to fresh, healthy food.
