Every weekday, at our Moss Park and Regent Park locations, Fred Victor delivers hundreds of nutritious, dignified meals for our community. Last year, we served over 100,000 free and low-cost meals to people experiencing food insecurity in the downtown east.
We anticipate more than 100,000 meals will be served at each of these two locations this year, due to increased demand during the COVID-19 pandemic. During this time, meals are being delivered by take-out, to increase safety measures for clients and staff.
Friends Restaurant located at 145 Queen Street East, serves two low-cost and nutritious meals for the community five days a week. Doors are open from 10am – 11:30am for brunch and from 4pm – 5:30pm for dinner.
Low-cost meals ($1.50 brunch, $2.50 dinner) are served in the same building as health services and housing. Each meal provides wholesome nutrition in an appealing way that encourages regular and good eating habits.
40 Oak Street in Regent Park serves free meals five days a week, with lunches on Monday – Friday and breakfasts on Mondays and Fridays.
Meals here are prepared daily from scratch using fresh ingredients, locally sourced when possible, and are nutritious and well balanced. We use only halal meat as part of our commitment to the diverse community in Regent Park. Meals are served in our welcoming community hub where participants can also access housing supports, advocacy services, referrals, and drop-in programs.
