Food and Fund Drives

Every month over 16,000 people turn to North York Harvest for food and support.  We need YOU to join us in supporting our community!

We are looking for Good Food Champions to make sure we can provide the healthiest food possible to our neighbours in need.

Food Drives

Donated food supplies 77 community food programs across Northern Toronto. From perinatal programs to neighbourhood meal programs, the food you collect will reach thousands in our community. We ask organizers to specifically collect our most needed food items: rice, canned beans/lentils, canned tomatoes, cooking oil and canned tuna. Choose one of these items, or all five and make sure our neighbours in need have access to the healthy food they need to get back on their feet. 


Collect Funds and Deepen Your Impact!

Encouraging your network to make cash donations instead of or along with their food donation is a great way to ensure we can provide food all year round to those who need us most. We can stretch cash donations 3 times farther than retail purchasing allows through our bulk buying program. That means your cash gift will put triple the amount of food on our shelves. We’ll provide you with a custom, online giving page to rally support. It’s an easy, hassle-free way to fight hunger with the click of a mouse. ! No need to make a special trip to the grocery store and you can feel good knowing that your donation will be used to help distribute food to 77 programs throughout northern Toronto.
