2019 marked the 5th year anniversary of Dixonlicious & the 90th anniversary of Dixon Hall, which started as a soup kitchen.
Dixonlicious is a culinary celebration & social fundraiser where attendees experience Regent Park & help provide 30,000 meals to those in need.
The event featured delicious food from local restaurants, craft beer, wine, musical entertainment, & a silent + live auction.
Those in attendance celebrated the importance of a good meal & the power of food to community build.
Proceeds from the event benefited the food programs in Toronto’s downtown east, including Meals on Wheels, March Break & Summer Camp for youth, and Community Meal programs.
Hot meals are delivered to isolated seniors though Meals on Wheels program, nutritious and snacks are provided to Regent Park youth during summer and March break camps, and many housed men and women attend the community breakfasts and dinners every week for a nourishing meal and an opportunity to connect with the supportive staff.
We would like to thank Char San Pedro-920 Films and Kali Madej-Communications Manager-Dixon Hall for the invitation to this event. We look forward to attending Dixonlicious in 2020.
