"The Jane and Finch community is home to more than 50,000 residents and is one of the most diverse communities in the City of Toronto," said Stephnie Payne, Executive Director, SRRA. "The Taste of Jane & Finch is an opportunity to spotlight the multiculturalism that makes our community so vibrant."

"Today, it remains one of the most progressive, innovative and reliable social service organizations in the community. We hope that the Taste of Jane & Finch will draw hundreds from around the city to celebrate SRRA's work and experience the flavours of this neighbourhood."
