Located in Toronto's west end, The Stop works to increase access to healthy food in a manner that maintains dignity, builds health and community, and challenges inequality. From its origins as one of Canada's first food banks, The Stop has blossomed into a thriving community hub. Neighbours participate in a broad-range of programs that provide healthy food, foster social connections, build food skills, and promote engagement in civic issues. Underlying all of The Stop’s efforts is the belief that food is a basic human right. All proceeds from The Stop's Night Market benefit The Stop Community Food Centre's critical anti-hunger and anti-poverty programs.

How does buying a ticket help The Stop?
The Stop’s Night Market is a fundraiser for The Stop Community Food Centre. All proceeds raised through ticket sales support our diverse range of programs, including our drop-in meals program, healthy food bank, perinatal program, community advocacy, local food markets, community cooking programs, sustainable food systems education, community gardening programs, and our state-of-the-art greenhouse and compost demonstration centre. A meal in our Drop-In Kitchen costs The Stop only $1.53, and $25 provides a family of four with a food hamper for three days. Imagine how far your $65 will go in making a difference in the lives of people in our community!
What can I do if the event sells out?
We hope you will try again next year! A sold-out event means that The Stop will reach its fundraising goals and be able to continue its critical work in the community. There are many other ways you can get involved and support The Stop, so please visit our website!
