CBC Toronto's Community Cares

Join CBC Toronto for Community Cares, a day of special programming with music, stories and coming together in support of Food Banks across the GTA.
(CBC Toronto)

Providing food to those in need can be difficult at the best of times. With COVID-19, and the challenging times we have faced over these last few months — and will continue to face — that task has gotten much harder. 

Since COVID-19, many Food Banks in Toronto have seen a spike in demand. Some Food Banks in Toronto have seen as much as three times the number of weekly visits compared to February 2020. 

Community Cares, is a day of special programming with music, stories and coming together in support of Food Banks across the GTA. 

On June 24th CBC Toronto will celebrate the resilience of a city and the people who are helping to bring us together, support our neighbours and feed our communities.
