SUMMERLUNCH+ PROGRAMS & PARTNERS
In Thorncliffe Park, we work with the Thorncliffe Neighbourhood Office (TNO). They run 6 summer camps for local children and we serve 200 meals a day to the campers and their counselors.
In partnership with Park Properties, we built our own community garden at 53 Thorncliffe Park Drive and this garden serves as a hub for education and food access. Summer camp kids come to the garden and learn about local food, and the food we grow is incorporated in the meals we serve.
In Moss Park, we work with the MLSE LaunchPad. They partner with several community agencies and over 150 kids visit their recreation centre daily. Here, we serve approximately 180 meals a day to the campers and their counselors.
In Alexandra Park, we work with the Alexandra Park Community Centre. They run camps for local kids and here, we serve approximately 100 meals a day to the campers and their counselors.
THE BOWERY PROJECT
Innovators, The Bowery Project are running an urban agriculture imitative out of milk crates and the campers harvest fresh food to add to the weekly menus. Alex Park kids are seeing how food grows and how fantastic fresh food tastes when you eat it straight from the vine!
