Sherbourne Health’s Recipe for Change
At Sherbourne Health, we believe that everyone deserves access to supports that address physical and mental health, and which also impact social determinants of health.
Food security is one of those determinants.
Our recipe for change recognizes that in order to assist people facing food insecurity, poverty, and social isolation, we need to expand our approach to include skills development along with nutritional education.
Our new lobby café is a part of the Sherbourne Health Food For Good initiative that will offer healthier options and offer training and employment opportunities for our service users and community members. All of these enhancements are supplemented by creating an accessible space for gathering, and using a social enterprise contractor to further expand training opportunities to those who need it.
The Sherbourne Health Food For Good Café Capital Campaign is raising funds for a new initiative with a big vision.
To expand our approach to food insecurity, Sherbourne Health is raising funds to transform our lobby café into a new, accessible model. Through the Food for Good Café, we aim to bring quality food to our neighbourhood, create opportunities for training and employment and build strong, resilient communities.
Thanks to generous supporters like you, we will build a new path forward to help address food insecurity in our community.
The new Food for Good Café is the next step in Sherbourne Health’s vision of Healthy People. Healthy Communities.
We will use funds raised in order to achieve our goal of an accessible space that will provide healthy food as well as training and employment opportunities for our community members.
Use the donation form below to give today, or contact Joe Goulart, Manager, Fund Development at email@example.com to support this project.
We have reached 100% of our fundraising goal!
But more support is always welcome.
When you give to our Café campaign, you are supporting an organization with deep roots in the community, focused on serving people who experience food insecurity in greater numbers than the Toronto average.
