Mission Statement

We are not here to offer handouts; we are here providing a hand up to those in need within the Greater Toronto area. As an organization, we focus on areas where individuals lack the capability to acquire proper nutrition and other basic necessities. We will go to those areas that require a hand up, providing ready-made meals, nutritional supplements and hygiene necessities. We will work with communities to nurture those in need of support. Our ultimate goal is to create a society without hunger.

How Are We Different?

Instead of being a food bank, stationed in one place, waiting for the people to come in, hoping they come in, we go to the source of those in need. We are a mobile service that strategically targets priority areas and travels directly there. Food banks are not in close proximity to many priority neighborhoods, thus making it difficult for families to make the trip. That stops now.

Activities in Support of Purpose

We are committed in building out our sustainability agenda via awareness and education, to ensure that we can provide to our communities beyond the temporary relief. As an organization, the physical target areas are anywhere where an individual lacks the capability to acquire proper nutrition or other resources. Volunteers will go to those areas that require a hand up, provide ready-made meals and hygiene necessities. Hand Up Toronto will work with our communities to nurture those in need of support. Our ultimate goal is to create a society without hunger. These goals that are to be achieved are set out in a three month, six month and one year advancements.
