Fort York Food Bank & Matthew House

Here at Le Dolci, we work with local charities to support those in need. Read below about the two amazing organizations that we are proud to contribute to.
Fort York Food Bank:
FYFB’s Food Program provides low-income individuals and families living in our community with a three-day supply of groceries. FYFB is a member agency of the Daily Bread Food Bank and our assigned service area covers the Westside of downtown Toronto, from Yonge to Dovercourt, Lake Ontario to Bloor. Many low-income individuals and families struggle to receive adequate nourishment. Working with registered dieticians, FYFB’s Food Program provides groceries that are consistent with the Canada Food Guide.
Matthew House:
Matthew House grew out of the vision of its founder and current director, Anne Woolger, who had worked for many years at a city-run shelter for refugees in Toronto. There her eyes were opened to the plight of refugee claimants who were arriving in Canada seeking asylum as refugees but had no place to stay. Recognizing the need for caring shelters geared specifically toward the unique settlement needs of refugee claimants, Anne approached her denominational leaders and shared her vision of establishing a Christian-based reception home that would provide a warm welcome for refugee claimants in a caring home-like setting.
