Good Food Matters
What we eat, and how we eat it, has a powerful impact on our sense of self. Our ability to access the foods we love, to express ourselves through cooking, and to share our traditions with others can build pride in our identities. It also deepens the connections we have with our families, cultures, and neighbours.
Food is at the heart of all of our work at The Stop. We provide opportunities for people to share a meal, enjoy a taste of home, and foster their sense of community. Using food as a tool, we aim to improve the mental and physical health of people experiencing poverty or even homelessness.
Although we know the answer to poverty and food insecurity is not food – but rather increased income – we are committed to serving our community members and meeting the immediate needs of the 1 in 4 Torontonians who live in food-insecure households.
