What’s On The Table at the Stop Community Food Centre

On Wednesday, November 7, the Wychwood barns at The Stop Community Food Centre will again be host to one of Toronto’s best and most loved food fundraisers.  Since 2005, What’s On The Table (WOTT12) has raised over $1.5 million for The Stop’s anti-poverty and anti-hunger programs.
