Happy Hungry Canada Day

TDIN really put their best foot forward this time, offering a great hilighted link on the front of their website, to the meal program holiday update for Canada Day... but of course...

  1. You have to download a PDF file.
  2. The PDF file has trouble downloading in certain browsers
  3. The PDF file doesn't have a file extension on the end of it, so inexperienced Windows users may not be able to figure out how to open it.
  4. The file is just called "Canada."
The good news: The Scott's open. EHM's open. CONC's open. The bad news: this guide is two pages and has very few listings. That is pretty sad.

But check it out: there's whisperings of a BBQ in Trinity Bellwoods Park at 1pm.

Here's their document converted so it can be viewed online: TDIN's Meal Program Listings for Canada Day 2013.

And here it is right in the page:

So once again, thanks to TDIN for doing the research, hopefully it's accurate, seems like about 1/3rd of what we'd usually have access to on a Monday, so who knows what's still happening today? If anybody knows of any Canada Day meals, any comments at the bottom could help someone.

Good luck and happy Canada Day, if that's what you want to hear.


  1. Hi, we host a meal program called the Sunday Soup and Social from Jan 5th to late March (depending on funding) at the Eastview Neighbourhood Community Centre. The food is served to clients and includes soup or salad, a main course, and coffee/tea. Could this be included in your guide? Please contact me at for more information.


  2. Awwww did not attend to this in time. Hopefully it's going on next year too.
