FoodShare Toronto

FoodShare Toronto is a community food security organization working in Toronto since 1985. We focus on long-term, replicable, and sustainable solutions for food insecurity in our city. We have championed innovative programs such as the Good Food Box that uses collective bulk buying to reduce the costs of fresh produce, Mobile Markets where former wheel trans buses have been retrofitted into markets that bring fresh produce to communities with no access to walkable grocery stores, and School Grown where public school board lands are turned into production-focused urban farms that provide paid jobs and school credits for youth. All of our lesson plans, how-to guides, and manuals are available online free of charge so that communities across the city, and beyond, can recreate food systems solutions in their own context and community.
