“Taste of Regent Park is so positive – children, families, friends building a strong community; seeing the same faces, learning about different cultures, eating amazing food!”
*Only Take-Away Community Meal
Amid the COVID-19 outbreak, CRC | Fred Victor has had to adapt many of our programs and services to put the health and well-being of our participants, community members and staff first. We are excited to announce that starting next Wednesday, July 8th, 2020 we will be hosting our first week of a modified version of Taste of Regent Park, out front our 40 Oak St. site!
From July 8th to August 26th, we will host 8 different Community Catering groups who will offer a Free Take-Out Community Meal from 6-7pm out front of the CRC building, instead of the Big Park. We have also continued our partnership with Regent Park Film Festival – Under the Stars to offer a virtual movie screening during our August event dates.
Here is our Community Caterer lineup for Summer 2020:
WEEK 1 – July 8TH – Roshna and Roksana – Bengali food
WEEK 2 – July 15th – Mariam Sayed – Afghani food
WEEK 3 – July 22nd – Kouser & Safia – Pakistani food
WEEK 4 – July 29th – Mary Ann – Philipino food
WEEK 5 – August 5th – Zarghoona & Malika – Afghani food
WEEK 6 – August 12th – Nurun & Foyzun – Bengali food
WEEK 7 – August 19th – Patricia Chung – Trinidadian food
WEEK 8 – August 26th – TBD
We are asking that all attendees respect social distancing guidelines and wear a mask when lining up and picking up a meal.
The Taste of Regent Park is an event that celebrates the vibrancy of the Regent Park neighborhood, creates opportunity to support the skills and culinary talent of local and culturally diverse chefs, caterers and artisans and animate public spaces. While this year’s event format will take place in a scaled down version, we still hope to continue to keep the spirit of the Taste of Regent Park alive through delicious food and community spirit in a safe and responsible manner.
