People need food – enough food, safe food nutritious food and the right kind of food to meet their needs.  The right to food is a basic human right that underlies and is part of all of our work.

Food also has important social meanings and roles. It is a way for people to communicate, to learn, to come together, to share and to connect to the natural world. In this way it provides a great common ground for all of the work that we do.

We address food needs and issues by:

  • Growing food & providing a place for others to do so in our community gardens
  • Bringing people together to share food through our community kitchen, community lunches and annual Eid events
  • Creating opportunities for people to learn about their food, for example through Gone Fishin
  • Providing healthy snacks to most of our program participants on a regular basis
  • Being a voice on food-related issues, for example by participating on the Toronto Food Policy Council
  • Sharing our knowledge and expertise with others, for example on community composting
  • Exploring new ideas for urban agriculture and farming
  • Supporting small entrepreneurs at the Market 707
