September 5, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Every meal you buy tonight = a meal for someone in need in TO!

Join GOOD FOOD FOR GOOD founder Richa Gupta and Executive Chef Katherine Sowden for a night of delicious snacks that also help feed those in need. This dinner is the launch of their new #Eat2FeedTO event series: all profits from this dinner will go to combat hunger in our local community through Second Harvest.

GOOD FOOD FOR GOOD combines creating delicious products featuring local & organic ingredients with an innovative social enterprise model that donates funds from every sale to reducing hunger at home and abroad. GFFG’s signature dips and spreads will also be available for purchase to take home.

GOOD FOOD FOR GOOD stands for “good food” and “good business.” We believe food should be made with only real ingredients found in a kitchen and should be consumed fresh and NOT several months after manufacturing! We also believe that the goal of a business is more than just the pursuit of profit. All of our foods are handmade in Toronto using fresh, whole and mostly organic ingredients. Our foods contain absolutely no additives, preservatives, powders, extracts or concentrates. We believe in bridging the gap between convenient and quality food while making a difference in fight against world hunger.
