EAST TORONTO FOOD COALITION
Make a Difference Today
The East Toronto Food Coalition (ETFC) is a grassroots food security initiative serving the Beaches East-York, Regent Park, Leslieville areas.
We started the initiative a few weeks ago. Initially we were just a group of community members sharing resources and delivering items to a small number of families within the community. The need quickly grew and word spread of our activities and resources, and we increasingly got organized.
Now we are partnered with our local Royal Canadian Legion, at 9 Dawes Road
[107274581 R0001], which was accessed with help from our MP's Office – THANK YOU!
Our community is suffering from a closed foodbank (Grace Pascoe), the Salvation Army only serving folks once per month, and the nearest pop up library foodbank is in Scarborough South-West (Taylor Memorial) which is in itself a neighbourhood suffering from a closed highly used foodbank offering no delivery for those single parents with kids, immunocompromised folks, etc.
The ETFC is filling a big gap – to serve hungry neighbours! As of this week, we have proudly served 125 families and 600 individuals every week (with a daily, volunteer run, delivery and pick up system) entirely with in-kind direct donations so far.
Together we will make sure that no one is forgotten, no one’s health is compromised, and no one should feel helpless!
