Sabor Latino

Sabor Latino is a community cooking program that brings together Torontonians with a shared interest in the cultures and cuisines of Latin America. This biweekly event takes place on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month at our 1884 Davenport Rd. location. The group meets in the community kitchen between 3:30PM and 7:30PM.

The aim of Sabor Latino is to reproduce a cultural environment that is customary in Latin American countries by bringing together people with diverse backgrounds and experiences to help prepare a delicious meal.

The meal preparation and conversation takes place in Spanish. However, the community welcomes participants with all levels of proficiency in the Spanish language. Our program is designed to help build food skills by encouraging participants to experiment with new recipes and ingredients. Recipes provide participants with simple ways to contribute to a healthy diet.   

Sabor Latino also places emphasis on social justice and community development. Each week, community members share information pertaining to food security, health services, legal services, and settlement services. The objective is to build partnerships with other community organizations and expose participants to the range of different services available to them. Music, traditional dancing, and storytelling shared by members of our community contribute an added cultural dimension to our food and social justice programming.

Sabor Latino provides a warm, inclusive space where participants can learn, grow, and connect with food and each other. The program provides access to food through sharing collective meals, builds skills through community meal preparation, and reduces social isolation by fostering connection between members. Most improtantly, Sabor Latino is a lot of fun.
