At Community Share, we collect, inspect, store and distribute food and beverages to individuals and families experiencing food insecurity.
Our food comes from the following sources:
We offer gently used clothing at no cost to those accessing Community Share.
We share information about government programs, community services, health and wellness, and employment opportunities.
In 2013, Community Share and Overland Learning Centre partnered to create the Overland Environmental Learning Garden (OELG), located next door to the food bank on Toronto District School Board property.
The garden has a diverse range of world crops and herbs. It provides an outdoor educational space for adult ESL learners, as well as fresh produce for our food hampers and various cooking programs.
Using available ingredients from our pantry, volunteers prepare dishes for participants to sample while visiting the food bank. Feature recipes are inexpensive, healthy and easy to make at home.
