Feed Scarborough, originating in 2018 as a modest initiative distributing holiday hampers, transformed into an essential service during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Now serving over 3000 neighbors weekly, the organization addresses escalating community needs.


Amidst food bank closures due to the pandemic, founder Suman Roy mobilized a team, initially funding grocery deliveries to 1000 households left without support. Today, operating five food banks, a mobile healthy meal program, three community gardens, spearheading vaccination initiatives, offering educational programs, and supporting a co-op student program, the organization runs with five dedicated staff, relying on short-term grants, community donations, and committed volunteers.


Their services span South Scarborough, where 150 volunteers assist 4500 residents, including children living in poverty. A unique approach is their recently launched free community grocery store, providing choice to guests through a point-based shopping system, respecting cultural tastes and dietary needs. This model ensures dignity, eliminates stigmatizing lineups, and fosters a warm, welcoming environment for those in need.
