Dufferin grove park hosts community dinners throughout the year(except October and November) every Friday from 6-7:30. In the summer food is served outside and people dine at the many picnic tables around the ovens or lounge out on blankets under the trees. In winter they move inside the club house beside the skating rink.

In the summer it is probably best to try and get there early as it's a popular event and they often run out of food before 7:30.

I enjoy the event for it's great food and the opportunity to meet and dine with fellow community members. Ingredients are mostly organic/local from the parks Thursday farmers market. They provide meat/veggie/vegan/kid options as well as salad, soup and dessert. The cost for the main? PWYC. $7 is the suggested donation. This goes to cover the cost of food and fund park programs.

The atmosphere of a city park and lovingly cooked organic meals is a recipe that is hard to beat. It's no surprise people come en masse.
