Toronto restaurant giving away free meals to people in need

Mar 30 2020, 12:43 pm

While the whole city is feeling the impacts of the global pandemic, some individuals have been hit harder than others.

In order to help support those who are hungry in the city right now due to job loss, food affordability, or otherwise, Little India Restaurant is offering free meals to those in need.

“We love our community, and we are not here to judge or verify each individual for their loss; instead, we are trusting our community members and focusing on how much difference we can make with supply and budget we have,” reads the restaurant’s website.

The concept is simple: the restaurant will offer one meat or vegetarian dish, with rice or naan bread, to anyone who visits the space and requests one. The spot’s website says that people can stop by twice a day, every day, if they need to.

“We are willing to serve you as long as we have supplies,” the spot says.

Free meals will be available for pick-up only at the restaurant’s 255 Queen Street West storefront.

The eatery has a history of helping out in the community, with donations going to Sick Kids, Toronto Synchro, Toronto Firefighters Association, and the Canadian Cancer Society in the past, alongside free meals to the local charities.

This website will be updated 24 hours before the meal giveaway ends, so you can check back to ensure eats are still available before stopping by.
