The Stop Community Food Centre has shifted its resources away from community programming and towards emergency food access services in light of COVID-19.
Our first and foremost priority is to protect the health and well-being of all Stop community members, staff, and volunteers. We're continuing to provide essential food access services to our community in an adjusted form at our main location at 1884 Davenport Road. This includes:
• Nutritious and long-lasting food bank hampers, offered twice a week.
• Hundreds of freshly prepared takeout breakfasts and lunches, offered daily.
• Community advocacy support line for those in crisis, offered daily.
• Fresh food and baby supply hampers for pregnant people and new parents in our community, offered weekly. These are difficult, unprecedented times.
It’s more important than ever for us to look after each other—especially those who are most at-risk in our community. The Stop is committed to supporting our community during this pandemic for as long as we can, however we can.
