Growing community,
Feeding change.

What We Do

The Stop uses good food to bring people together.

For over 35 years, we’ve connected 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, or in the community advocacy office, The Stop is a place where everyone is welcomed with a seat at the table.

The Next 10,000 Meals

We’ve served over tens of thousands of nutritious meals and packed over 7,200 long-lasting food hampers for people struggling with food insecurity.

Since April 2020, we’ve served 50,000 meals. We’re projecting to serve 10,000 more meals than we would in a non-COVID year and are counting on your support to help us meet the needs of #thenext10000.
