About The Stop

Mission: The Stop strives to increase access to healthy food in a manner that maintains dignity, builds health and community, and challenges inequality.

For over 30 years, The Stop has been at the forefront of dignified, innovative programs that provide access to healthy food; build skills, health, hope, and community; and confront the underlying issues that lead to poverty and hunger. Our wide range of programs include drop-in meals, a food bank, community kitchens and gardens, perinatal and family support, civic engagement, and children and youth engagement.





The Stop is accredited by Imagine Canada for excellence in nonprofit accountability, transparency, and governance.





The Stop is proud to be the founding affiliate of Community Food Centres Canada (CFCC) and works collaboratively with CFCC to share what we’ve learned to build stronger, healthier communities from coast to coast.
