Harmony Community Food Centre Celebrated Black History Month at their Dine-in Meal

Harmony Community Food Centre (CFC) celebrated Black History Month in February at their monthly dine-in community meal. Along with a dedicated group of volunteers, Harmony CFC’s kitchen team prepared and served a delicious meal of baked beans with beef, collard greens, mashed potatoes and roasted red peppers. This meal served as an opportunity to learn about, recognize and celebrate the incredible contributions of Black community members, while also giving clients the chance to discuss efforts to address anti-Black racism locally.

In an effort to provide accessible and healthy foods, and alleviate food insecurity within the community, Harmony CFC offers clients hot takeaway meals every week and serves a dine-in meal once a month. Dine-in meals at Harmony CFC provide community members with an opportunity for celebration, relationship-building and community engagement centered around a nutritious, made-from-scratch meal. On average, Harmony CFC serves approximately 200 takeaway meals per week and between 60 and 80 meals on dine-in days (last Wednesday of the month from 3:30-5:00pm).

Harmony CFC is a program of South Riverdale Community Health Centre, in partnership with Community Food Centres Canada. Harmony CFC is located at 2 Gower St, East York. For more information about Harmony CFC, please visit srchc.ca/program-category/harmony-cfc or call 416-752-0101 ext. 4226.
