Research and Advocacy

Food security, hunger, and poverty are complex and important issues.  As such, making headway will require a multifaceted approach with the participation of community members, government, business leaders, individuals donors, innovators, students, and so many more.

All of us here, our many donors, clients, partners, and leaders believe in starting the conversation. We want to use our voice and empower others to have a voice. Working together, we can bring about long term sustainable change in the city of Toronto.
