Oasis Dufferin Food Bank situation

It's pretty good. It's your typical Daily Bread stuff. Extra extra points for the fastest in-and-out time in the business, the least grueling signup process, and the distinct lack of sketchy, violent vibes in the building.

On their website, the hours are listed on the contact page, so you won't find them on the food bank page. The food bank is open on Wednesdays from 9:30am-12:30pm.

The building is on the east side of Dufferin and on the north side of Hallam... so that's just south of Dupont. The entrance to the food bank is on Hallam Street yo!! Not on the Dufferin side of the building. You try that Dufferin side and you never know. Rob Ford could be waiting there for you with a baseball bat, or a PowerBar snack and a smoothie and a smile... you never know what that guy's gonna be up to.

Here's the door you have to go to... it's in an embedded Google Street View thing, because this is the only site on the 'net that's not predicated on denial about homeless/poor/fucked people having internet access... right? Right? Right, here it is:
