Big Night at The Green Barn

A celebration of growing and sharing good food.

Big Night celebrates backyard gardens of the past, present, and future, and highlights the long history of growing food in Toronto. Enjoy a magnificent, four-course, family-style meal inspired by classic Italian home cooking and prepared by some of the city’s finest chefs, all in support of our food access and community-building programs. Buon appetito!

See you in 2017! #TheStopBN @TheStopCFC

Thank you to everyone who made Big Night at The Green Barn such a huge success in 2016. Together, we raised $225,000!

Every year at Big Night, we come together to share delicious, healthy food — something we do at The Stop every day. All of the proceeds from this event support our critical food access and community-building programs.

Your tremendous contribution will mean we can continue to create the change we want for a healthier, stronger community. Thank you!
