Toronto is much more than just a hub for business and entertainment: it’s our local community, full of vibrancy, diversity, and endless potential. As an active member of our community, we care about giving back to our environment and the people that inhabit it.
Every year we avoid food waste by donating leftovers to local food banks and nutrition programs, supporting impactful organizations such as Daily Bread Food Bank and Second Harvest. During our 2017/18 fiscal year, we donated 96,709 kg of food, equalling approximately 322,363 fresh meals that have gone to feed students and community members across the GTA.
Additionally, during the 2017/18 fiscal year, the MTCC donated 56,821 kg of office supplies, delegate bags, clothing, furniture, and more. These food and in-kind donations not only support local underserved communities, but they also help the MTCC maintain a high waste diversion rate, allowing us to achieve our 90% diversion target for the 2017/18 fiscal year.
