About the Children's Storefront

The Children’s Storefront has been welcoming and supporting Toronto families since 1975.  We are a not-for-profit with a full-time staff of two, a Kitchen Coordinator and a volunteer board of directors.


For over 40 years, parents, grandparents, caregivers and children have gathered at The Children’s Storefront, to find support, form friendships, develop a strong sense of community, learn, and grow together. 


Our Community Kitchen offers wholesome, low-cost lunches every day.  We host occasional potluck brunches, fundraising dinners, cooking bees, and cooking skills workshops.


Because our mission has always been to be accessible to all families with young children, so The Children’s Storefront has never charged for its programming. As the first child-parent centre in Ontario, we paved the way for many of the free programs now in existence.


We run on a shoe-string budget and get by with a little help from our friends.  Please consider donating $20, $35 or $50 today.  It’s easy to do! Just click on the Donate button to make a secure donation via PayPal or mail your donation to The Children’s Storefront, 826 Bloor St. W. Toronto, ON  M6G 1L9.

Thank you very much to the many kind friends and donors who have supported us over the years.
