The Stop Community Food Centre uses food as a tool to build community and create change.

The Stop works in the Davenport West and St. Clair West communities of Toronto with people who are income insecure and face social isolation, and who experience barriers to access and inclusion.

For over 30 years, The Stop has been at the forefront of dignified and innovative work. Their services and programs build healthier, more connected, and more self-determined communities.

The Stop’s community services help meet people’s immediate needs; community programs build skills and support networks; social enterprises feature innovative approaches to community-building; and change-making work informs progressive public policy through public education, engagement, and advocacy.
