Thank you for Supporting the Sweetery Box Initiative

On behalf of the Sweetery team, local vendors, Second Harvest and the front line staff, we wholeheartedly thank you for participating in this sweet campaign that not only helps local businesses but also gives back to the community in many ways. Please stay tuned for more campaigns and initiatives in the future by following us on Instagram and Facebook @sweeterytoronto

Deliveries and curbside pick-ups will take place on Saturday May 23rd.

As Canadians continue to quarantine at home to fight the spread of COVID-19, we have had limited access to food we once craved, 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. Pre-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.

FrontLine Staff Gifts

When you select the option to donate a Sweetery Box to frontline staff, the box will be hand delivered by our volunteers at Sweetery on the day of delivery. We will be focusing primarily on frontline staff from hospitals, grocery stores and public transit. We realize the tremendous sacrifice that these individuals endure on a daily basis and we’re hoping this simple act of kindness will bring them a message of how much our community cares about them. Sweetery wholeheartedly thanks you for your support.

Helping Local Businesses

Local businesses have been severely impacted by the recent COVID-19 pandemic and as they try to convert their strategies to curbside pick-up and home delivery, it just isn’t the same amount of traffic. Through your support in buying a Sweetery Box, each vendor that is listed above will get full proceeds of their product towards keeping their business afloat. If you would like to continue to support them, please check out their website or instagram handle for more menu items!

Order Notes

Please specify in the Order notes if someone other than the name on the receipt will be picking up the order. The Full Name and Receipt Number will be required to pick up the order.

Your order will only be available at the location that you had specified which is also indicated on the receipt. Changes to the pickup location will not be permitted due to the short time frame and restrictions of our operations. 

Order splitting is not permitted. All orders will be processed as a single package and need to be picked up or delivered all together due to the short time frame and restrictions of our operations.

Donations to Second Harvest

Second Harvest is Canada’s largest food rescue charity  that have created an essential emergency response plan to make sure that no one gets left behind and can access the food they need during this critical time.  Sweetery has partnered with Second Harvest to assist in these hunger relief programs to create meaningful impacts in our communities. What does this mean? For every Sweetery Box that is purchased, Second Harvest is able to translate the proceeds into 10 hearty and healthy meals for those in need (or for every $1 = 2 meals). With your help and support, we can ensure that all Canadians have access to a healthy and nutritional meal.

For more information about Second Harvest, please visit their website at secondharvest.ca

COVID-19 Precautions

The utmost precaution will be taken by our volunteers at Sweetery and as well as any individual that will be handling the packaging and food. The food from our vendors will be prepared in a commercially licensed kitchen with their food handling license and will be packaged beforehand and then placed into the Sweetery Box at a central location.

During curbside deliveries, all volunteers will be wearing the appropriate attire when handling the packaging including gloves and masks. We will try to minimize the need for any human contact by delivering the box right to your car when you arrive.
