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 Toronto Foundation found that people earning less than $30,000 were 5.3 times more likely to be affected by COVID than those with incomes above $150,000.

Every day, people in our community are making the impossible choice of paying rent , staying safe, or purchasing food.
