Vee's Vegan reopens, and more ..................

A few days ago, Golden Crisp ( click here for details )  seemed to be the only hot food option other than Domino's and Pizza Tazza.  Two good restaurants have just reopened, so MDCA surveyed everyone and found out that most are now open for take-out.

Great food available, but Vee's ( instagram ) has added a special offering for our front line workers.  Call them at (416) 249-1221 as they are offering specially prepared meals for front line workers as well as call ahead for regular diners.  Vee's is now open Tuesday to Saturday, 10 til 7

supercoffee  ( more info here ) also takes phone orders, (416) 551-8421 , open 8 to 6 Mon - Fr and  8 to 5 Sat & Sun

Canvas Cannabis opens on Friday, ( so it says on the website! )   at 1285 Weston Road.  If over 19, visit their site at

Toronto Library for All
The branch may be closed, but our librarian, Nora Lay, is still working for us!  She advises that anyone with a Toronto phone number (area codes 416, 647, and 437) can apply for Digital Library Services.  If you do not have a library card but would like to access OverDrive, all you need is a Toronto phone number.

With instructions to avoid loitering in parks, perhaps a good time to review the Park People website and get involved in supporting our local parks.

Liberate your Lawn

Liberating Lawns is a yard sharing project of Sundance Harvest seeking to match prospective food growers with landholders so that their lawns can be liberated! This is neighborhood-focused, and York-South Weston is one of the 10 wards included in this project. If you live in Mount Dennis, this is a wonderful way to either grow food or give space to someone who needs it. 

‘Yard Sharing’ is a popular way across Canada to help people who want to grow fresh, local produce but don’t have access to gardening space; overall, it helps increase local food security and builds resilient communities. Here is the link for those interested in growing food and those who are able to share their land to grow food on
