Give Food

Food donations are vital to our mission.

By donating non-perishable food items, you will help ensure that the tens of thousands of individuals experiencing hunger across our city can access the food they need for themselves and their families. Whether you’re donating extra items from your pantry, making a special trip to the grocery store to purchase food to donate, or rallying your friends and family to organize a food drive, your support will make an immediate difference for people experiencing food insecurity in Toronto.

Three ways to give food.
