Join FoodShare Toronto as we celebrate Black culinary excellence in support of programs that promote equitable access to good food across the city.

Enjoy an amazing evening featuring more than 30 superb food and beverage stations, starring some of the city’s best chefs and most enticing culinary creations. Move and groove to live music, and out-bid fellow foodies on one-of-a-kind items at a silent auction.

Our annual fundraiser is unlike any you’ve experienced before. Recipe for Change 2020 is putting a spotlight on the culinary artistry and vision of some of Toronto’s most dynamic Black chefs, brewers and winemakers. Take in the elegance of the Bram & Bluma Appel Salon at the Toronto Reference Library and celebrate the power of food!

All proceeds support FoodShare. We advocate for equitable access to affordable, fresh and nutritious food and for food justice where everyone can feed themselves, their families and their community with dignity. Our community-led programs reach more than 250,000 Torontonians through school nutrition programs, urban farms and community gardens, affordable markets, and cooking workshops for newcomers, young parents, and people living in transitional housing.
