Yes great idea.
Went by and I saw a homeless druggie person politely take a few items he needed and put in his backpack.
Don’t worry...he wasn’t hoarding in fact I saw him go back into his backpack and used the same hands to put back some of the loose green beans back into the fridge for others to use/eat.
Saw at least 8 different hand open and close the door reaching in for free food...FYI NONE of the food is packaged.

I think this is a noble cause but could it not be paired with some kind of sustainable, community farming initiative that is more long-lasting? Teach a man to fish type of thing. I am sure the climate in Toronto would allow all kinds of fresh produce to be grown and anyone who has grown stuff knows that a little effort can go a long way. It can also give these people a boost to their self-esteem by creating something with their own efforts and perhaps helping others in need at the same time.
