The PARC Board of Directors is hosting their first annual holiday feast to raise funds for PARC's meal program.
Of the 15,000 adults living in South Parkdale one third are unemployed, on social assistance or low income; half are living in unaffordable housing; almost two thirds are living in single person households; many living in isolation are elderly and many live with mental health and drug use challenges.
It is the PARC promise of a hot meal that first brings many people through PARC’s doors. PARC meals do stretch people's limited incomes; they do provide an opportunity to socialize and make a friend and they are at times the catalyst for so many more positive changes in people's lives.
What makes donating to PARC at this time of year so important is simple: food. Food brings people together. Food brings people through our doors at 1499 Queen St. W. And food is the starting point for building an inclusive community that welcomes everyone right here in the heart of Parkdale.
This is why the PARC Board of Directors invites you to come to our first annual holiday feast
