We are helping people just like you – pet owners who have an unexpected vet bill, freelancers whose clients are late paying them, people who work odd jobs with non-guaranteed hours. Food insecurity can happen to any of us. We are a peer-to-peer initiative. The people we help are our fellow Torontonians.
Around 12 per cent of households in Toronto experience food insecurity. This is defined as inadequate or insecure access to food because of financial constraints. Many people just need a helping hand until they are back on their feet. Some people don’t think they are the right clients for a traditional food bank or feel there is a stigma attached to visiting a food bank. We meet our clients one-on-one in a neutral location arranged at a convenient time. No one will know that you are receiving our help unless you choose to share that information.
DONATE: Our priority is to get fresh, nutritious food into the hands of our neighbours and peers. To succeed in meeting our mission, we shop for food as close as possible to the day we get it into our clients’ hands. You can help us by keeping our grocery bills paid! Your cash donation will go a long way to ensuring your neighbours and peers get fresh food when they need it the most.
VOLUNTEERS: We are entirely volunteer-run. If you’d like to help us in our mission, please fill out the form below to express your interest and help us learn a little more about you.
