Growing Community.
Feeding Change.


The Stop uses good food to bring people together.

For over 35 years, we’ve connected Torontonians to good food in spaces that are warm, dignified, and respectful.
Whether it’s in our urban gardens, at a drop-in meal, or in the community advocacy office, we’re a place where everyone is welcomed with a seat at the table.


Our work at a glance:


Community Services

We help people meet their immediate needs with dignified and respectful community services—all centered around fresh, nutritious, nourishing food.


Community Programs

We focus on building individual resilience and supportive social networks through programs for youth, new mothers, isolated seniors, and other members of our community.

Social Enterprise

Our year-round Saturday Farmers’ Market at Artscape Wychwood Barns supports a healthier local food system, while generating income to fund our vital programs.



We work with our community members, and other like-minded organizations and allies, to challenge the systemic causes of poverty and advocate for social change.


“We need to come together to build the city we all deserve.”

We can’t do it alone.
