FINALIST 2014 – Heritage Toronto Award

It began as a food bank. It turned into a movement.
 
In 1998, when Nick Saul became executive director of The Stop, the little urban food bank was like thousands of other cramped, dreary, makeshift spaces, a last-hope refuge where desperate people could stave off hunger for one more day with a hamper full of canned salt, sugar and fat.
