A Good Food Market in partnership with The Church of the Messiah, 250 Davenport Community Housing, and FoodShare Toronto. Wednesdays from 3:00-7:00pm.
The Good Neighbours Food Market is striving to help increase the availability of fresh, healthy food in our community, at a lower cost than is conventional. This is part of a food-security initiative. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to eat fresh, healthy food. We are located at 250 Davenport Road, but our exact location changes based on the seasons. In the summer we are in the park off Bedford Road and in the colder months we are in the basement (best entrance is off Pears Ave). Look for our banner outside on the fence!
Mission: Our goals are to: - Help more people have access to fresh, healthy, affordable food - Help our neighbourhood learn more about healthy food - Offer a safe and fun place to gather and socialize - Create a sense of community in our neighbourhood - Be good neighbours to one-another, and form friendships
