The Community Action Program (CAP) is a program of The Stop Community Food Centre based in Toronto's Davenport West neighbourhood. The CAP empowers community members experiencing poverty and marginalization to challenge chronic income and food insecurity by facilitating stronger community support networks, raising political consciousness, and taking direct action.
What We Do
Community Action Training
CAP Training is a 10- to 12-week course that helps members of the community learn about the root causes of poverty and inequality, and learn about ways to fight it. Topics covered include:
- Housing Rights
- Media Skills
- Political Economy
- And More...
