We love good food!
We know good food. No doubt about it.
We have some of the best restaurants around, including Toronto’s best Tibetan restaurants, an emerging vegan hub, and great places for great food and great company. We also have community gardens, farmers markets, the West End Food Coop, community kitchens and food banks, and all kinds of community programs that connect people with good, healthy food.
Our goal is to maintain a strong connection between our community and our food.
Good Food Tips
GROW LOCAL – grow your own veggies in your backyard, on your balcony, or in a community garden. Plant fruit trees and shrubs.
EAT LOCAL – visit the farmer’s markets, look for local foods in local stores, and eat foods that are in season.
ENJOY GOOD FOOD – make food a passion, whether it is growing and cooking your own, making preserves, enjoying local restaurants, or choosing organic, vegetarian, or vegan cuisine.
