Daniels Spectrum – 585 Dundas St. E, Ada Slaight Hall
A culinary celebration in support of vital food programs for vulnerable populations in Regent Park and downtown east. Live entertainment provided by The Matt Morgan Trio. Silent auction throughout the evening. Speeches by Neil Hetherington, Dixon Hall CEO, and Darren Cooney, Board Chair.
Food insecurity continues to be an issue for far too many Torontonians, and food bank usage is up year-over-year. Homeless shelters remain at capacity and precarious housing is on the rise. Proceeds raised at Dixonlicious will support Meals on Wheels, provide food to men and women in emergency shelters, and supply healthy snacks for children and youth attending our summer camps. Caring for vulnerable populations starts with the foundation of a proper meal.
Neil Hetherington, Dixon Hall CEO, Darren Cooney, Board Chair
