The Stop Community Food Centre uses good food to bring people together in Toronto’s West end.
Every year, more than 20,000 people come to us to eat a healthy meal, grow food, cook together, share resources, or speak up against the root causes of poverty.
Our Work During the Pandemic
During COVID, we’ve served over 63,000 nutritious meals and packed 7,200 long-lasting food hampers for people struggling with food insecurity.
Are you passionate about The Stop’s work and mission? Here’s how you can help:
Tasty, nutritious, and culturally appropriate meals cooked and served
Long-lasting food bank hampers distributed to our community
Pregnant mothers experiencing isolation who took part in our Healthy Beginnings Program
Hours our Community Advocates spent on the telephone hotline connecting their peers to resources
Seedlings grown in our greenhouse, then given to 27 other food groups across the city
Meet the staff, volunteers, and community members behind our work.
“I’m the third youngest of 15, so I’m used to working in bulk.”
“The Community Kitchen program seeks to be an antidote to these uncertainties by bringing people together and reminding them that they are not alone in this.”
“Food insecurity is a constant for many people, when so many other things in their lives aren’t constant at all.”
Your support helps us offer good food in a way that makes a difference.
