Over many emails, meetings, phone calls and cups of coffee, we were able to come together to support folks in and around The Junction. We did it!
With your support and dedication we were able to raise over a record-smashing $21,000 !!!! for programs that help people access fresh, local food, including our own voucher program administered in partnership with The Four Villages Community Health Centre. The funds also support programs at other food organizations such as Everdale, Food Secure Canada, FoodShare, Roots to Harvest, Slow Food Toronto, and The Stop Community Food Centre. It takes a village to make this happen!
We wish to express thanks to each of those who made up our Junction Night Market village:
To everyone, thank you again for helping us and joining us to bring our community together through food, drink, and song. We are overwhelmed by such displays of community, dedication and kindness. This event makes a huge difference for Junction residents and families who now have increased access to healthy food.
Although the event has just finished, we are already thinking about next year; how to achieve the same
success and beyond. For this, we would love to get your feedback – for the entire journey to get to Saturday including all the peaks and valleys. We’re always striving to do better, so please tell us how. We sincerely appreciate your input.
Thank you again, and we hope to see you next year!
