Foodism is giving back to those affected by COVID-19 – here's where you can donate

We owe a great debt to Toronto's food industry – so we're giving back to those affected by COVID-19 by donating all net profits from our latest issue to food banks and save hospitality initiatives. 

Over the past few months, we’ve been thinking about (read: lying awake, stressing about) all the ways in which the coronavirus will continue to impact the food economy long after the citizens of Toronto are on the other side of lockdown.

One thing made clear throughout this difficult time is our deep need for food. As the restaurant industry grappled with its new reality, chefs wasted no time sharing recipes mid-crisis. It’s not called the hospitality industry for nothing, but if the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that we owe local businesses the same generosity.

Here at Foodism, we owe a great debt to the wider food industry – which is why we want to do our part to give back. All net profits from the advertising in the Summer Issue will be donated back to the community with half going to the Fort York Food Bank to purchase food, and the other half to save hospitality initiatives.
