Second Harvest, Canada's largest food rescue charity, is celebrating the success of Toronto Taste, Toronto's original premier culinary event presented by The Daniels Corporation. On Sunday June 4, guests savoured every second as the best of Toronto's food world went head-to-head, trying to outdo each other to the absolute satisfaction of the crowd and the benefit of Second Harvest. —
The event, sponsored in part by Bhole IP Law, featured spectacular dishes and drinks from over 90 of the most sought-after restaurants and beverage purveyors, including Baro, Lavelle, Kanpai Snack Bar, Bar Reyna and Ufficio, all new for the 27th year of the fundraiser. Guests enjoyed breathtaking lakeside views, an eclectic selection of wines and beers, the chance to win exciting raffle draw prizes including $10,000 USD in flight vouchers from Delta Air Lines, a live auction offering the opportunity to dine at Bob Blumer's LA home or join Chef Roger Mooking for an action-packed food tour of New Orleans, and much more.
"We had an unforgettable culinary experience at Toronto Taste. We were thrilled to host new restaurants and to have the loyal support of those that have participated for many years. Every year we are excited to see what our chef and beverage providers will bring to the table for our guest to enjoy," said Debra Lawson, Executive Director, Second Harvest. "Twenty per cent of all of our fundraising revenue comes directly from Toronto Taste, making this event critical for Second Harvest's success."
Since 1991, the event has raised over $12 million in support of Second Harvest's food rescue program. This has enabled the organization to rescue enough fresh, surplus food to support hundreds of social service agencies across the GTA with more than 29 million meals for children, adults and seniors experiencing hunger in the city.
Proud to be a sponsor this year, Patent Agents Bhole IP Law associate Anil Bhole stated how impressed they were with the turnout. "We had an amazing turnout and the most important part was that we raised money for an excellent cause. As Trademark Lawyers, we know how important it is to give back to the community in any and every way we can."
