“The West End Food Co-op is a multi-stakeholder co-operative that includes eaters, producers, workers, and community partners.  We aim to provide viable food security initiatives that are specific to the needs of our west end communities.  Examples of these kinds of initiatives include the Sorauren Farmers’ Market, our Community Cannery, Food Mapping Project, and our latest endeavour of opening a Food Hub in the Parkdale CHC.

West End Food Co-op connects local farmers to local eaters, and produces self-sustaining initiatives that work for the community.  Our co-op is working to increase markets for local, sustainable farmers and artisan producers; a fair, democratic, and meaningful workplace for our workers; an inspiring, community-driven, and welcoming place to shop, learn and connect for eaters; and a resource and valuable partner to work with community groups in Parkdale and across Toronto to improve food security and access to good, healthy, real food in our neighbourhood and beyond.

We aim to provide the means for people to make empowering food choices, and have access to fresh, healthy foods.”
