We pulled out our gardening books last weekend. It is time to start thinking about what we want to grow in our little, city backyard garden this spring. Even though the ice and snow are firmly covering the ground, it is never to early to start thinking about gardening. The people at FoodShare Toronto hold a similar belief. FoodShare believes that no child is too young to start learning about growing food and how to lead a healthy life. Have you been wondering what to do in Toronto that can truly make a difference? Come out and support the incredible work of FoodShare Toronto by attending their annual fundraising event, Recipe for Change.
What to do in Toronto to Make a Difference
Food Share Toronto is a non-profit organization that has been working tirelessly to fight hunger in Toronto for almost 30 years. They have created a variety of programs that reach into communities; working with children and adults. Perhaps one of FoodShares greatest programs has taken place inside schools in Toronto. FoodShare partnered with Toronto school boards to reach school aged children in the classroom.
FoodShare and the Recipe for Change initiative advocates for food literacy education in classrooms through out Ontario. The goal is for food literacy to become an integrated and required component of the curriculum, leading to food conscious children. On February 27, 2014, FoodShare’s 5th annual fundraising event will take place at the St. Lawrence Market. Guests at the event will enjoy a variety of culinary delights. Recipe for Change is bringing together 30 top chefs, 30 VQA wines and 6 local breweries for one incredible evening. FoodShare is especially proud to have students from Bendale Technical Institute and Eastdale Collegiate Institute serving their own culinary creations to guests. Recipe for Change is a delicious opportunity to support children, education and an amazing community organization.
