About the Society (SLRO)

We are perhaps best known for our Food Bank located at 274 Eddystone Avenue in North York.  Our Foodbank has been in operation since .... and is one of the oldest food banks in Toronto. 

The Society for the Living Relief Organization (SLRO) is an offshoot of the Apostles Revelation Society (ARS) which is co-located with the SLRO Food Bank and the Society of the Living Relief (SLRO).

To more easily administer the Society's Food Bank separately from the ARS, The Society for the Living Relief Organization (SLRO) is applying for charitable status under the CRA in Canada but is currently administered by the Apostles Revelation Society who is a registered charitable organization. 

Those wishing to make donations to SLRO may do so through the ARS by marking an donations as being specifically for the Food Bank or for one of the SLRO programs.  Charitable receipts will be issued by ARS while we are in this interim phase of getting a separate charitable status for SLRO.

The Society (SLRO) has been extending the free programs which it is offering to the public to include a range of activities for youth and seniors.  They also offer general programs for computer literacy to help people use their computers to create resumes, learn Microsoft Office (MS Word, Excel).  Having a better understanding of the internet allows people to search for and apply for jobs on line, buy and sell online (eg. Kijiji ) and search for accommodations and contact legal and government agencies.

If you are interested in any or the programs or interested in volunteering.... we can ALWAYS use a helping hand, please contact us at 416-746-0388.
