At the Parkdale Food Centre, we believe that everyone should have access to healthy, nutritious food. If you are an individual or a family facing an emergency food shortage at home, we’re here to help.
The Centre focuses on providing fresh, local, wholesome foods to our neighbours in need. We also offer nutritional education and cooking classes to show how simple ingredients can be transformed into fresh and flavorful meals that foster improved physical and mental health.
We are a registered not-for profit charity staffed by a team of energetic volunteers and supported by a network of community partners who share our vision of building healthier, more connected communities through good food and friendship.
