Hot Dog & Hamburger Party for the Homeless at Moss Park

  • to
  • Moss Park

    Queen Street East & Sherbourne, Toronto, ON (map)

    43.654530 -79.369446

  • I will let the Maxwell Meghan Centre, the shelter across from Moss Park, and the Good Shepherd Centre, Shelter just on Queen East that we will be holding this event at the Park for Homeless. This will mean we will have a lot of hungry men and women there, not just the 100 people we normally feed at each event.

    I think this will be a really nice end of summer treat for the homeless.

    I don't think we can set up a BBQ at the park without permits. So we will have precooked hot dogs and hamburgers and set up a table at moss park to hand them out to the homeless. I say at least 150 hot dogs and 150 hamburgers. We will also try to serve cookies, water bottles, lemonade, and possibly watermelon.

    I will try to get corporate donations but we will still require donations from the group.

    This is just an estimate but here is the cost breakdown:

    Hot Dogs $60

    Hot Dog Buns $30

    Hamburgers $100

    Hamburger Buns $40

    Condiments $20

    Water Bottles $35

    Lemonade $15

    Lemonade Jugs $10

    Ice $25

    Cookies $30

    Watermelon $60

    Cups, Plates & Napkins $20

    Estimated Cost = $445

    Above is a tight budget but I'm sure I can get some items donated or purchased wholesale.

    I can borrow a couple of fold out tables from work. I can get a hold of 2 big coolers.

    If you have the following items we can borrow and use for the event please let me know:

    Big Coolers (We need about 10)

    Portable Music Player

    Everyone is welcome at this event. Even if you just want to come hang out and chat with the homeless. You will definitely find they are so eager to talk and share their stories.

    I encourage everyone to wear costumes if you have them. I will bring with me some animal hats if you don't have any.

    If you can't make it but would still like to donate food or cash towards the event, message me.

    I will need help with Prep at my place so if you are up for that please message me as well.

    This event may draw a bit of attention to the Avengers Club, our Mission and what we stand for.  I've been approached a couple people now who want to do a short documentary on the Avengers Club, as well as photographers who want to take some snaps of us spreading some laughter and smiles Toronto.

    I'm awake at 4am and sick... I hope my numbers add up and what I'm saying is coherent.

    All YOU SUPERHEROES ROCK!!!!! SO PROUD.... Go Avengers!

    I guess it's better to pre-cook the hot food; not only would it skirt the issue of having to bring a bbq and get permission but I can imagine people standing waiting for things to cook.
    So I guess you don't need me to write to Ford now.
    Let's keep in touch and keep apprised of updates and expectations.
    Where will we do the cooking?
    What happens if we don't get enough money?
    Please put YELLOWJACKET under my name.:D
