About The Stop

Mission: The Stop is a nationally respected non-profit organization that’s been on the front lines of tackling hunger and poverty in Toronto for over 35 years.

We strive to increase access to healthy food in a manner that maintains dignity, builds health and community, and challenges inequality. 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
 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.
