The Parkdale Community Food Bank sits in the well-known Parkdale-High Park area, home to places such as Sunnyside Beach, The Canadian National Exhibition and Ontario Place. For the last six years we've made it our mission to provide food for those in need, the hungry and the impoverished. At the height of the housing bubble crisis, we've seen an increase of single men and women who'd gone from being the working poor barely able to make their rent, let alone scrounge for money to purchase food.
Partnering with the Daily Bread Food Bank and Second Harvest who provide a combined total of 70-80% of our food, we've been able to succesffuly meet the challenges and needs that we're faced on a daily basis. Our mutual partnership keeps our vital organization alive, as well as efforts from our community in lieu of donation drives, volunteermanship and awareness.
We would not exist without our partners and friends within the Parkdale Community, and for that we are blessed. If you'd like to get involved with the Parkdale Community Food Bank by any means possible, click this link to find out more information on how you can help!
