West End Food Co-op Film Screening: Food, Inc.

The West End Food Cooperative would like to invite you to a fun and informative film night at Roncesvalles Revue Cinema!

On Wednesday December 9th, WEFC is screening Food, Inc., as part of our ongoing Community Bond campaign. Peter Travers of Rolling Stone magazine advocates: “Don’t take another bite till you see Food, Inc., an essential, indelible documentary.” Variety magazine states: “Food, Inc. does for the supermarket what ‘Jaws’ did for the beach.”

The box office opens at 6:30, with an admission price of $10. Arrive early to get a seat and talk to WEFC Co-op Directors in the foyer. The movie begins at 7:00, followed by a discussion about community bonds with co-op founder John Richmond. WEFC will explain how our co-op is part of the sustainable solution to an undemocratic food system.

PLEDC will be hosting the ‘Parkdale Holiday Party’.


A fun and joyful day for the whole family with live musical performances.

Lots of good cheers welcoming all our Neighbors and friends.

In the spirit of the Holidays, we are having a Holiday Food Drive in which we are collecting Non perishable food items for the less fortunate which will be distributed through our local food banks.

The day will be filled with the kid’s crafts station and a visit from Santa Claus where the good little boys and girls will take pictures.

We will also be honoring the beloved Tibetan community with the ‘Volunteer Appreciation Ceremony’ with awards and recognition certificates. At this occasion, Councillor Gord Perks will join us and MPP Cheri DiNovo will deliver a speech. Following the ceremony we’ll have a projection of pics & video of the projects the Tibetan and community volunteers has helped us with.

Refreshments will be served throughout the day!

Come join us for a Jolly Ole time!
