COVID-19

Our top priority is the health and safety of all participants and volunteers of Toronto Miracle on December 4th. If you are symptomatic, please isolate and do not volunteer. 

Recommendations for Food Donors:

  • Wash your hands before and after handling food donations
  • Place your donation on the porch/doorstep in a place visible from the street
  • Remain inside while volunteers collect the donations, donations should not be passed from person to person.


According to Toronto Public Health, there is no evidence that COVID-19 is spread by food or food packaging. Wiping down containers or packaging is not necessary.
