BUILDING LIVES
Community Meal Program

DSC_0013-smallThe Community Meal Program is a space where everyone can connect over a healthy breakfast or lunch.

We serve fresh, nutritious meals, which are offered free of charge on a drop-in basis. Breakfast is served 2 days a week (Mondays & Fridays from 9:00am-10:00am) with approximately 130 community members attending each meal. Lunch, which is served 4 days each week (Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays & Fridays from 12:00pm-1:00pm) generally, attracts about 250 diners.

Our meals are made from scratch and served by a team of staff and volunteers. We aim to use fresh, seasonal, local and sustainable ingredients where it is possible. We believe that all people deserve access to fresh and healthy food, served with dignity and respect.

We always provide a vegetarian option with every meal served. All meat purchased is certified Halal.

A typical week of meals might include:

Weekend Meals

Although the Regent Park Community Food Centre does not operate its meal program on weekends, you can still access a healthy meal at 40 Oaks through Church in the City’s Saturday Dinner (5:00pm-6:30pm) and the Muslim Welfare Centre’s Sunday Regent Meals (11:30am-1:00pm).
