Community Share provides a three-day supply of food, twice per month, to individuals and families who live within our catchment area. For new participants, identification with name and address is required to register. Visits are BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
Participants can choose non-perishable items in a market-style model. Through the support of our donors, hampers always feature fresh produce, milk, eggs and bread. Hampers also highlight a Local Food of the Month, with an accompanying recipe.
We now offer a delivery program. Participants who are unable to come to the food bank in person, may apply to have a hamper delivered right to their door.
Community Share currently offers a referral service for participants who would like to be connected to other social services within the GTA. Please call 416 441 3209 to leave a message for our Community Navigator, who will get back to you.
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 provides an outdoor educational space for adult ESL learners, as well as fresh produce for our food hampers and kitchen programs.
Our dine-in healthy snack program, community kitchens and cooking workshops are currently on hold during the COVID-19 pandemic.
