Greenwin Corp. and Kitchen24 to deliver meals to homeless, Toronto
Recent reports from the City of Toronto's shelter system flow data, over 9,000 individuals were living in homelessness at the end of November 2021.
TORONTO — Volunteers from Toronto Police Services 13 Division and 31 Division’s Community Police Liason Committee will work with Kitchen24 and Greenwin Corp. to prepare and deliver over 1,000 meals to high priority areas across the City, including to encampments in Moss Park and beneath the Gardiner Expressway, Dec. 24th.
“Since the beginning of the pandemic, we’ve seen the number of people struggling grow exponentially,” said Steve Kidron, Co-Founder of Kitchen24 in a statement.
“People everywhere are experiencing higher levels of financial constraints, health concerns and food insecurity. This isn’t a homelessness issue, it’s a human issue.”
“In times of great need, it is so important that individuals and organizations step up and support their communities,” added Mark Tenaglia, a member of TPS 31 Division’s Community Police Liaison Committee in a statement.
“We are happy to again join Kitchen24 and Greenwin to support the needs of our City.”
A statement from Greenwin Corp. stated that recent reports from the City of Toronto’s shelter system flow data, over 9,000 individuals were living in homelessness at the end of November 2021. The demand for shelter services far exceeds the number of beds available, making this population especially vulnerable to food insecurity during the harsh winter months.
