community pantry

Give what you can. Take what you need. Working together for a better future!

This is the goal of the “Little Free Pantries Project”. These pantries are springing up across the city, you might have seen one in your neighbourhood. Why? Because it is estimated that food insecurity affects almost 1 in 5 Toronto households (18.5%).

As the food programs running from BUC close for the summer, we hope to build a Community Pantry, close to the street and easily accessible. Can you help us out by building a pantry? Here is a link which includes detailed plans for a pantry

If you are able to help or know someone who might, please let me know.
Thank you
Karen Dale, in ministry with Beach United Church

Message from the Richard Bott, Moderator of the United Church of Canada

I join with many across Canada to condemn the act of religiously motivated hatred and violence that took place in London, Ontario, on Sunday - the murder of a Muslim family and an act of terror against Islam.
Let us be with all those who mourn.
Let us use all that we have and all that we are to stand in the face of the evil that would allow and cause this crime of hatred. Even as one man has been arrested for his actions, let us uncover and work against the beliefs, the worldview, the racism and the hatred that supported his choice.
May the Most Compassionate and Most Merciful God dwell with those who have died in paradise and give patience and blessing to those who mourn through this time of trial.

We must remember the names of the family who were murdered & work for change.

Nine-year old Fayez survived the attack and is now recovering in hospital with serious injuries.
