Giving Tuesday at The Stop
THE STOP COMMUNITY FOOD CENTRE
This Giving Tuesday, your gift to The Stop will support our neighbours with good, nutritious food.
At The Stop, we believe that food is a human right. We’re working to create a city where everyone can access food that's nutritious, sustainable, ethically sourced, and culturally appropriate.
Your Giving Tuesday gift to The Stop will go towards our Good Food Fund, directly supporting our healthy food programs that serve over 70,000 nutritious meals a year.
Good food is worth it. Please give now to support good food in our community.
- A gift of $16.00 helps provide a community member with a week’s worth of healthy meals in our Drop-in.
- A gift of $50.00 helps provide 101lbs of onions to our kitchens.
- A gift of $225.00 helps provide 1 month of food hampers for 6 new mothers and their families.
Good food does more than fill stomachs — it gives community members the energy to conquer hardships, and most importantly, to contribute to a place of community and friendship.
It might be difficult to imagine how it would feel to be unable to afford food for you and your family. In a country as wealthy as Canada, in a city as prosperous as Toronto, it’s easy to overlook that many of our neighbours are struggling. Because of low wages and unaffordable housing, 1 in 7 families can’t afford to keep food on the table — a number that doubles for Black and Indigenous families.
Giving Tuesday marks the start of the holiday season and the end of the year. It’s a time when we pause to think of others, and reflect on how we can give back to our communities. The donations that The Stop receives over these next few weeks will carry us through 2020. Your support will help us offer good food to our community in a way that makes a difference.
