This Father’s Day, treat dad to the best of Toronto’s smoked meat and relax with a few libations, all in support of The Stop Community Food Centre.
On June 19th, Caplansky’s will defend their Deli Duel title against fierce competitors Goldin’s and The Stockyards. Will they be successful? Round up your family and friends and come by the Wychwood Barns between 1:00 and 5:00 pm to find out! Three-ounce sandwiches from all three delis will be available for purchase ($3 each), and attendees will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite sandwich. The winning deli will receive the much-coveted Deli Duel trophy and, of course, bragging rights. Kiju juices will be there for the kids ($3), Steam Whistle will be pulling pints ($5) and Tipicular Fixin’s will be serving up their unique brand of 100-km cocktails ($5).
All proceeds from the event go towards The Stop’s innovative programs to fight hunger, build hope and inspire change.

About The Stop: Located in Toronto’s west end, The Stop Community Food Centre works to increase access to food in a manner that maintains dignity, builds health and community and challenges inequality. From its origins as one of Canada’s first food banks, The Stop has blossomed into a thriving community hub where neighbours participate in a broad range of programs that provide healthy food, foster social connections, build food skills and promote engagement in civic issues. Underlying all of The Stop’s efforts is the view that food should be a basic human right.
