The second annual Dixonlicious took place on March 29th, 2017 at Daniel’s Spectrum in Toronto. The event helped raise funds for the important work that Dixon Hall Neighbourhood Services does in providing meals to those in need. They do this through a variety of food programs such as Meals on Wheels, Summer Camp, Homeless Shelter Programs, Out of the Cold, AIDS Programs and more.
Last Year’s event helped bring more than 20,000 healthy meals to people in need – homeless men and women, frail and isolated seniors, Regent Park youth, and many more. The goal for this year’s event was to increase the amount of meals served to 25,000.

Dixonlicious was an incredible evening shared with good company and great eats. It is important to support events and organizations like this within our city because without Dixon Hall many vulnerable populations in the city's east end would not know where their next meal is coming from. Their numerous food programs are helping thousands of people from going hungry. The number of people accessing the meal programs continues to increase each yeah and so it is vital to support events like Dixonlicious so that these programs can keep progressing. You can also help out by volunteering at Dixon Hall as they are always looking for extra help!
