SCRO is now planning the next Scarborough Walk of Fame Celebration Day, on April 10, 2024.

SWOF showcases and celebrates the best of Scarborough. We have so many talented, accomplished and,

well, famous people ... right here in Scarborough, who make a difference here at home and, in some cases,

become ambassadors for Scarborough around the world.

Scarborough Town Centre will be where it all happens.

Want to nominate someone to be a “Star” on the Scarborough Walk of Fame?

On August 3, 2023, Feed Scarborough held a successful report launch for Substance Beyond the Surface: A Deep Dive into Food Security and its Root Causes. This report showcases some of the challenges Feed Scarborough's clients are facing. These challenges include income, housing, and immigration.

We had speakers amplify issues: Komiwtha Sukanaraj (Founder Sincerely, Scarbs) speaking on income and employment issues within the community, Anna Dewar Gully (Co-Founder of Tidal Equality) speaking on housing affordability, Gurmat Randhawa (South Asian Legal Clinic) speaking on issues newcomers face, Sarah Boomhower speaking on the rights of Indigenous people. 

As noted in the report, 28.1% of Feed Scarborough’s clients reported being employed either full-time, part-time, contract, or temporary work. This is significant to note as employment doesn’t guarantee food security. According to the data, 89.2% of Feed Scarborough’s surveyed clients live in rental units. Previous studies have noted that food insecurity is 4 times more prevalent in renters than homeowners. Almost all (95.3%) of Feed Scarborough’s food bank clients that were surveyed were not born in Canada. With 75.4% living in Canada for less than a year, showcasing the gap between needs and actions. Policy recommendations on successful immigration integration, affordable housing, and income are discussed in the report.

This summer, we are running a fundraising challenge event called Step4Water, so kids don't have to, supporting us to raise funds to build six wells in rural villages in Zambia in 2023. These wells will provide safe and accessible sources of drinking water, transforming the lives of hundreds of families, particularly children, who currently endure daily walks of up to 4 hours to reach often contaminated water sources.

Access to clean water is a basic human right, yet for rural communities, it remains an arduous and dangerous challenge. Yet, with support, we can make a significant impact and alleviate their suffering. Our goal for this year's fundraising campaign is to raise a total of $27,000, which will cover the costs of constructing six essential wells, each changing the lives of hundreds of people.

We are inviting people to challenge themselves to participate in a 5K or 10K run, in any place, and at any time between Saturday August 26th and Sunday September 30th. Participants will receive participation kits in the mail including an official t-shirt, completer medal, wristband and vouchers, and their name will go on the signage of a well built in rural Zambia. Together, we can ensure that children in these rural villages no longer have to endure the hardships and health risks associated with limited access to clean water.

The video explaining the challenge is here:
