The 12th Annual Riverside Antler Breakfast was a HUGE success! The outpour of support this year was truly phenomenal and we’re happy to share that we’ve met our $10,000 goal to support the year-round operation of the Rivertowne Breakfast Program in 2024!

After three years of a virtual event, it was truly a joy to reconnect in person and support the community together. We extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who supported and joined us.

The Riverside Antler Breakfast has been held annually in December to raise funds for a local cause, now in its 12th year. We have been raising funds since 2014 for the Rivertowne Breakfast Program which was founded by Joan King and is championed by Rivertowne Safety 1st, a resident collective, comprised of Toronto Community Housing women leaders dedicated to making a positive impact in their community. The Breakfast Program year round, to provide over 100 children, seniors, and people with different abilities – including primarily BIPOC – in the local community with a free, warm breakfast. It also aims to bring people in the community together and be supported regardless of their family income level, and give them something to look forward to while building a sense of community.

Didn’t have a chance to support or want to pledge more?

You can support by donating anytime of year via Canada Helps, just choose ‘Rivertowne Breakfast Program’ in the dropdown. menu.
