Another post I would have shared weeks ago had my website not been down…
I’ve long been a fan of FoodShare.
FoodShare is a non-profit organization that works with communities and schools to deliver healthy food and food education. We believe everyone deserves access to affordable high-quality fresh food. Since 1985, FoodShare has pioneered innovative programs like the Good Food Box, impacted what kids eat in school, and improved the way people eat and grow food across Toronto every day.
They do fantastic work.
Next week is the 6th annual Recipe for Change. Here are the details as they were sent to me:
On Thursday, February 26, 2015, Toronto’s St Lawrence North Market will play host to FoodShare’s sixth annual Recipe for Change event, bringing with it a feast that is second to none in order to boost healthy food and Food Literacy in our schools. Join us in supporting the next generation of healthy eaters, growers, and sharers.
As in the past, FoodShare will once again be collaborating with chefs, brewers, master winemakers and skilled food artisans at this year’s “Party for the Future of Food” edition of Recipe for Change. In addition to many of the leading lights that have supported FoodShare over the past years, Recipe for Change is extremely excited to be adding some of Toronto’s newest arrivals and hidden gems.
Participating Bright Lights Include:
- Dailo’s Nick Lee
- The Bombay Street Food Company’s seasonal, delicious takes on Indian street food
- Veghed with Chef Ren Mercer
- The Tempered Room featuring Chef Bertrand’s French pastries
- Fonda Lola with Andres Marquez and Howard Dubrowsky
- Mata Petisco Bar with Felipe Faccioli

- Specialty coffees by Crema Coffee Co. and organic teas by Lemon Lilly
- 6 artisan food vendors at this year’s new addition: the Recipe for Change Market
In keeping with the spirit of the event’s name, they’re once again engaging some of the school children they work so closely with in their various programs, to get their hands in the mix. Students from FoodShare’s work on the school farms at Eastdale Collegiate and Bendale Business and Technical institute, for example, will be serving guests at one of the chef stations.
This is a chance to be part of a unique annual event, to try lovingly crafted food by some of Toronto’s top toques, have it expertly paired with craft beers and wines – all while supporting a truly worthwhile cause. Pull up a seat at Toronto’s finest dining event – you won’t want to miss this!
