CRC/Regent Park Food Centre’s first Street Eats Fest

Contributed by Enloe Wilson — TORONTO – Local street food stars will come together in a showcase of the city’s culinary diversity at CRC|Regent Park Community Food Centre’s Street Eats Fest on Wednesday, Nov. 29.
WHAT: Downtown Toronto social services provider CRC|Regent Park Community Food Centre will bring together the best of the city’s street food scene in the agency’s first ever Street Eats Fest. The event will showcase complimentary samples from an array of Toronto street food stars, two craft breweries, and a premier local winery.

A team of community advocates and year-round life skills and capacity-building programming also are delivered in the space. Known as “the go-to for all things food security-related” in Regent Park, CRC | RPCFC will showcase the culinary diversity of Toronto while profiling its social impact at Street Eats Fest. Toronto street food luminaries Pow Wow Café, 416 Snack Bar, De La Mer Fresh Fish Market, Joshna Maharaj, and Jose Arato will serve up an range of complimentary food samples; Magnotta Winery, Godspeed Brewery, and Grady’s Cold Brew will keep the libations flowing.
