Sort & Learn Workshops

2019/2020 Sort & Learn Workshops

Education is a core component of our mission at North York Harvest, and we’re always looking for ways to best engage our community so that they can help us make a difference.

Consisting of a one-hour interactive classroom lesson and a one-hour sort session in our warehouse, the Sort & Learn workshop aims to teach groups about issues related to food insecurity while empowering them to help people in need. Participants are taught by our staff and volunteers about the root causes of hunger and poverty in northern Toronto, giving them a better understanding of our food bank clients’ current situation.

As we are limited in available time slots, groups are limited to only one sorting session per season unless otherwise arranged.
