Help us Spread Holiday Cheer this Season
As the holiday season is approaching, there are many people living in a state of crisis in the city. “Last year there were 1.45 million food bank visits in Toronto, the highest number ever recorded in the city’s history.”
This year, we’re partnering with the Daily Bread Food Bank from now until the holidays to help tackle food insecurity. The Daily Bread Food Bank has seen a 5% increase compared to previous years with roughly 85% of their clients report not having enough food.
We know insufficient income, precarious employment, and unaffordable housing are the primary barriers to people achieving access to food. With food bank visits reaching unprecedented levels, it’s more important than ever to ensure everyone’s right to food is recognized.
Here’s how you can help:
We are accepting food donations at the Steam Whistle Brewery located at 255 Bremner Blvd.
While all donated food is appreciated, the following food items are most urgently needed at this time:
- Baby food and formula
- Peanut butter
- Canned fish and meat
- Canned fruits and vegetables
- Rice, grains, lentils, beans
- Dried pasta
- Pasta sauce and canned tomatoes (whole or crushed)
- Cans of soup and stew
- Powdered, canned, and tetra-pack milk
Click the “DONATE NOW” button to make a gift to Daily Bread and help ensure our neighbours can continue to access food in 2023.
If you make a monetary donation over $20 show your server your donation receipt at our Taproom and Biergärten and we’ll reward you with a complimentary bottle of Steam Whistle.
Home Delivery Donation
10% of proceeds of our Home Delivery bottle sales throughout December will be donated to the Daily Bread Food Bank.
Thank you in advance for your generous support!
