As Canadians continue to quarantine at home to fight the spread of COVID-19, we have had limited ability to not only to find food we once had access to at the tip of our fingers, but also the limited ability to help those in need within our community. That is why the team at Sweetery have come together during these unusual times to be able to assist in a special way. We are introducing Sweetery Box, which consists of a series of special treats prepared by local vendors all around the GTA packed into one box. Sweetery Boxes not only help local businesses stay afloat but help feed Torontonians in need; for each box sold, Sweetery will be donating an equivalent of 10 meals through our community partner Second Harvest. Orders will begin on Monday May 18th for pick-up or delivery with options to gift a box to a friend, a family or even frontline staff. It’s a WIN-WIN-WIN situation that can allow anyone to participate from their very own home.
Pre-Orders start May 18th and will end May 21stDetails

On Saturday Aug 10th Night, Sweetery will be hosting its very own movie night right on the lawns of David Pecaut Square! Grab your comfy clothes and your favourite sweet from our very own vendors and enjoy this year’s remake of Disney’s Aladdin starring Canadian actor Mena Massoud, Will Smith and Naomi Scott. A street rat frees a genie from a lamp, granting all of his wishes and transforming himself into a charming prince in order to marry a beautiful princess. But soon, an evil sorcerer becomes hell-bent on securing the lamp for his own sinister purposes.
The movie will start at 9:00pm with weather permitting.
Benefiting the Second Harvest Community Charity
Sweetery is very excited to be partnering with Second Harvest as our official community sponsor this year. Second Harvest is the largest food rescue program in Canada. Since 1985, Second Harvest has been picking up donated, surplus food, which would otherwise go to waste, and delivering that food to over 220 social service community agencies in Toronto.
Promoting local communities has been our utmost priority in not only supporting our local eateries but also giving back to our local charities. This summer, Sweetery will be hosting six activity tents in which participants will get a chance to compete in a series of sweet related games by giving a donation that will solely benefit Second Harvest. The winner of these games which include a candy test, gumball shake, rocket tower and a pixie stick drop, will win a “sweet” prize. Be sure to stop by these fun-filled interactive tents with your friends and family to get a shot at winning some prizes while also helping your local charity!Learn More
