Big Night at the
Green Barn

A celebration of growing and sharing good food.

“Big Night at the Green Barn” celebrates backyard gardens of the past, present, and future, and highlights the long history of growing food in Toronto.

Guests enjoy a magnificent four-course, family-style meal inspired by classic Italian home cooking and prepared by some of the city’s finest chefs—all in support of The Stop’s food access and community-building programs.

After the final plate was cleared, our fabulous chefs, volunteers, and nearly 300 guests helped us raise a record-breaking $270,000 during 2018’s event.
