The People's Pantry

The COVID-19 crisis has left many in our community struggling to access food as we are faced with mass unemployment and loss of income, excessive hoarding at grocery stores, reduced transportation options, and more. Particularly hard-hit communities include, but are not limited to, QTBIPOC (Queer, Trans*, Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour), single parents, sex workers, those living in precarious housing situations, those living with underlying medical conditions, those with disabilities, newly-arrived immigrants, and the elderly.

The People's Pantry launched in response to this urgent need. We are a completely volunteer-run, grassroots initiative providing home-cooked meals to individuals and families across the GTA who have been disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 crisis. We serve those who are struggling financially or are otherwise unable to provide sufficient food for themselves and their family. Meals will be delivered right to their door, 100% free of charge.
