The Children’s Storefront is a free service that provides support for parents and young children. Since 1975, the Storefront has been the place where children could come and learn how to play together in a child-centered and family friendly environment.  Parents, grandparents and caregivers share personal experiences in a supportive environment. Adults and children are served together in the same program. The absence of structured programming at the Storefront means that everyone is welcome at any time. Programming of this nature fosters a strong sense of community and supports families adapting to the needs of their young children.

We are located on Bloor, near Ossington station.

This position will best suit someone who is confident working in the kitchen, enjoys being part of a vibrant community and is able to work independently.

The meals and food products created in the community kitchen are the primary source of fundraising for The Children's Storefront and this position is an essential part of the team.
