We’ve had to do some repairs over at 145 Queen Street East in the past six months and Friends Restaurant has been affected. So, to give a huge boost of energy to all our staff and community members at that site, we re-opened the restaurant and launched Fred Victor’s annual turkey fundraising campaign at a free brunch on November 23, 2017.
It was a fantastic morning that embodied the spirit of our community perfectly. Members of the Board had a chance to meet the rich diversity of community and tenants who come to Friends Restaurant each day. Volunteers got to know our organization and staff and community for the first time.
Everyone who came for brunch was given a free pair or socks, a raffle ticket and a candy cane. Close to 200 meals were served.
