COMMUNITY CONNECT TORONTO AT A GLANCE
Community Connect Toronto, formerly East Toronto Food Coalition, is an indigenous-led, non-profit organization established in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Initially we were just a group of community members sharing resources and delivering items to a small number of families within the community. The need quickly grew and word spread of our activities and resources, and we increasingly got organized.
Since our inception, CCT and our partners have proudly served 18,000 individuals with a daily, volunteer-run, delivery and pick up system with food donated from our sponsors. We provide emergency food hampers and other food support through our community partners.
Together we will make sure that no one is forgotten, no one’s health is compromised, and no one should feel helpless!
WHAT WE DO
EMERGENCY FOOD HAMPERS
We aim to provide access to healthy and nutritious food for families and individuals experiencing food insecurity. Our emergency food hampers are comprised of vegetables, fruits, dairy and meat products and are delivered directly to our clients' doors.
FOOD SUPPORT FOR COMMUNITY PARTNERS
We proudly support our community partners' food security initiatives through deliveries of produce, meat, and baked goods. Our partners include Club Sandwich, Native Women's Resource Centre, Scott Mission, Good Shepherd and Community Fridges of Toronto.
We are currently seeking funding to develop a community garden to further support our food security and community development initiatives. Please contact us if you would like to donate or be involved.
“I believe that non-profit organizations represent our best, collective selves. They are a place of dreams, opportunity, and courage – a constant reminder that we can do better for all of our citizens, but most importantly, for those who have been marginalized and left behind.”

Community Connect Toronto wishes to acknowledge the land on which we live and serve the community. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and the Mississaugas of the Credit. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
