|With lockdowns and restrictions on gatherings still happening, this is the wisest and healthiest course of action for our guests, volunteers and the amazing restaurants who do so much to support Second Harvest. We are looking forward to seeing you again in person when we can! One of the many reasons we all loved Toronto Taste was how it brought us together to raise funds and do good for people in need – and with COVID, those needs have become more urgent. As a result of the pandemic,|
1 in 7 Canadians is now struggling to feed themselves and their families.
|“I can’t thank you enough. It is only my husband who works as I still can’t find a job. We are always worrying about the girls and how we are going to feed them healthy meals and pay the rent and the bills. You’ve helped us so that we know that the girls are getting nutritious meals and we don’t have to worry about meals for a few days.”|

|Toronto Taste may be cancelled but now more than ever we have to keep Feeding the Need. From March 1 to March 31, we are asking all past attendees of Toronto Taste to donate what they would have spent on tickets this year and make a donation to our Feeding the Need campaign. Our goal is to raise funds to provide food for one million meals. Every dollar you donate provides food for two meals – if you usually purchase two tickets to Taste, the $550 you would have spent will help us provide food for 1,100 meals! The Daniels Corporation, our long-time Toronto Taste presenting sponsor, is continuing their incredible support by being the presenting sponsor of Feeding the Need and matching donations to a max of $250,000, which enables your gift to go even further: your gift of 1,100 meals will become 2,200 meals. You can have an amazing impact on your neighbours in need!|
