Harmony Hall Seniors Active Living Centres and Community Food Centre Highlights

November was a truly special month for Harmony Hall Seniors Active Living Centres. We hosted a successful Seniors Fair featuring a range of enriching activities including information booths, fall prevention workshops, an elder abuse workshop, and cultural performances. 125 healthy meals and snacks were provided during the fair with the support of the Harmony Community Food Centre. Refer to our monthly calendars to stay up-to-date with future celebrations and workshops.

In the fall, the seniors transportation team safely provided over 1300 rides to seniors aged 55+ and adults with disabilities living within East York. Please visit our program page if you want to travel safely with us this winter.

We had a busy autumn at the Harmony Community Food Centre with lots of great programs including the Good Food Market, Mind Your Food youth program, community meals, garden club, special holiday meals and more.

Highlights included:

  • The Good Food Market saw 1,886 visits during the four months that it ran in 2023! It is now on pause for the winter months and we look forward to starting it up again in the spring.
  • The Mind Your Food program involved 14 youth aged 13-18 years old. The program featured discussions about food traditions, our connection to land, and how well-being is connected to what we eat. It also allowed youth to improve their cooking skills and try new recipes.
  • 1,553 free hot meals were provided through the weekly community meal program and 35 families won free turkeys through the holiday turkey raffle.
  • Two rounds of a free 6-week community kitchen program will be offered this year. Individuals aged 18+ with any level of cooking experience are welcome! Please contact [email protected] for more information.
