2,300 meals each week! Yes, that’s 'essential'. PARC is one of the few agencies open in Toronto that continues to serve nutritious meals, during this epidemic. Since 1977, PARC has a solid record, helping downtown residents who live with mental illness, addiction, homelessness + food insecurity. PARC offers supportive housing, peer-support + a drop-in centre at 1499 Queen St W. Each dollar means nutritious meals, community building, safe homes + a receipt to reduce your Income Tax!
PARC both (1) helps individuals to rebuild their lives + (2) works on the factors which produce poverty. PARC partners with other agencies + enterprises, acting as a neighbourhood hub in Parkdale. Recently, PARC encouraged a Parkdale community land trust providing affordable housing, supportive housing, poverty relief + local economic development. Give whatever amount you feel comfortable donating + know that you will receive a receipt to reduce your Income Tax.
