Recipe for Community

Recipe for Community is a Toronto Foundation and City of Toronto led initiative to engage neighbourhood residents young and old to improve the sense of belonging and safety in their communities. It's one way we're improving our city from the ground up, one neighbourhood at a time. The initiative brings together donors, sponsors and residents to invest in four key community "ingredients": food, convening, youth engagement, and neighbourhood beautification.
