An Indigenous Feast is being hosted by the Toronto Police Officers and Indigenous Elders who participate in the Walkabout Program to benefit the homeless community downtown.

The event will take place on Wednesday, October 31, 2018, at 12 p.m., at the Church of the Holy Trinity, at 19 Trinity Square.

The Walkabout Program pairs Toronto Police Officers with Indigenous elders to walk the downtown core to connect Indigenous people living or panhandling on the streets with social services. It is a partnership between the Downtown Yonge Business Improvement Area, Toronto Police Service, Toronto Council Fire Native Cultural Centre and Anishnawbe Health Toronto.

A lunch of traditional Indigenous food including Moose Stew and Bannock among other foods will be offered along with donations of jackets, toques, beds, boots and Halloween candy.

Officers from 51 and 52 Division, along with Elders from Toronto Council Fire Native Cultural Centre and Anishnawbe Health Toronto as well as several homeless men who assist with the Walkabout Program will be available for interviews.
