About This Market

The Stop Community Food Centre is a vital organization based in Toronto, dedicated to tackling food insecurity and fostering community bonds for over 40 years. They aim to combat the systemic poverty that leads to issues such as food insecurity, social isolation, and lack of access to essential services.

The Stop offers a variety of programs and services to support their community. These include emergency food access through food banks, communal meals, and good food markets, as well as community-building initiatives that involve peer-led actions, clinics for taxes and identification, and support for new and expectant parents. The organization emphasizes urban agriculture as well, featuring seedling giveaways, a microgreens program, and various community gardens like the Indigenous Mashkikii;aki’ing Medicine Wheel Garden.

Their approach is rooted in empowerment and engagement, guiding community members to propose and develop new programs and public policy priorities. The Stop is not just providing charity but aims to build a sense of responsibility and mutual care among its members. Remarkably, an average of 431 meals is served daily, 90% of participants feel a part of the community, and 40% of the food budget is devoted to local sources.

For those who wish to get involved, The Stop welcomes volunteers, donors, and community advocates, continually adapting to the evolving needs of its residents and creating meaningful change in the city of Toronto.

The Stop operates at multiple locations in Toronto and can be contacted via email, telephone, or fax. As a testament to their operations, they hold accreditation under Imagine Canada’s national Standards Program and maintain transparency with their Charitable Registration Number available on their website.
