The Stop uses good food to bring people together. We’ve connected thousands of low-income Torontonians to good food in spaces that are warm, dignified, and respectful. Whether it’s in our urban gardens, at a drop-in meal, at our food bank, or in the community advocacy office, The Stop is a place where everyone is welcomed with a seat at the table.
We run extensive emergency food access and social service programs at three locations in Toronto. Each program aims to address the effects of systemic poverty: food insecurity, social isolation, unequal access to land, and difficulty navigating health and government systems. We meet people where they are and help meet their needs.
Join us in building the stronger, more connected Toronto that we all deserve. Each one of our 270 volunteers play a vital role in every aspect of our work. Many volunteers have experience with the issues facing our community, such as unemployment, poverty, and homelessness. This creates a unique sense of community in a non-judgmental and empathetic environment.
