Core Values

Compassion, Integrity, Collaboration


Fighting food insecurity in our communities


Creating equitable access to food support in marginalized communities

“When I spoke to people about my vision, I began to see that there are many people who have the heart to serve, but simply need a platform to give of their time and resources.”

– Seema David, Founder

How We Got Started

5N2 was founded by Seema David in 2013. Seema immigrated to Canada in 2007 and while commuting to work downtown each day, she was shocked by the homelessness that was evident on the streets of Toronto. At the same time, she was meeting other new immigrants in Scarborough who were struggling to feed their families.

Determined to help her community, Seema began to serve soup three days a week. 5N2 Kitchens was birthed, operating out of a shared space at the Global Kingdom Ministries church kitchen.

In early 2023, 5N2 moved into a new space. Over the last few years, the demand for food support and the number of families facing food insecurity has risen dramatically and 5N2 is working hard to make sure that no one goes hungry in the Scarborough and GTA area.

Currently, we are serving over 3500 meals at 7 locations each week and supplying much needed grocery hampers to the more isolated in our neighborhoods.

Alongside our kitchen, we run additional programs such as the 5N2 Community Garden.

Who We Serve

We strive to minimize hunger and food insecurity in our communities. We work with partner organizations to bring fresh, warm meals to local residents, serving at food banks, shelters, seniors buildings, drop-in centres and apartment buildings.
