The heart of our work is the belief that communities thrive when everyone has access to fresh, healthy food. We also believe that when you treat people with respect, and value their skills and choices, you help make lasting change possible.
340 Gerrard will support the diverse Regent Park, St. James Town and Moss Park communities, where residents face disproportionate barriers to health and well-being. It will serve as a local resource for newcomer families, seniors, children, as well as people experiencing homelessness.
Not only will community members access high-quality food in a dignified space, but they will also find connection and support to take action on issues that affect their lives.
At 340 Gerrard, we’ll be able to conduct hands-on research to address the systemic causes of food insecurity. A new Research and Policy Centre will expand our capacity to examine the systemic issues that underpin poverty and food insecurity.
We will harness our collective voices to advocate for change by bringing expertise, data collection and advocacy training under one roof.
You can disrupt traditional thinking about food insecurity.

“The pandemic has highlighted more than anything how unfairly people have been impacted. The ones who are most affected are those that are poor, racialized, living in areas with fewer resources.”
