What is the Bag of Toronto?
There is no better time to support and celebrate small businesses! And there is no easier way to do this than with the Bag of Toronto - a curated assortment of specialty products from local vendors in nine different neighbourhoods, delivered right to your doorstep.
There are nine editions that you can purchase, each from a different neighbourhood. Each version will include five or six products from a selection of different businesses in the neighbourhood. A portion of each purchase will be allocated to different charities, one in each neighbourhood.
What is in each bag?
Each neighbourhood bag will contain mostly food items, with some gift or self-care items as well. Each business includes a physical item in the bag, not just gift cards. The majority of the food items in each bag are non-perishable, but there may be one item in your bag that is perishable (such as cookies, cupcakes, cake, etc). We recommend planning on enjoying that item on the weekend you order it!

How much does it cost?
Every bag is $65, tax included. Each one includes products from local businesses that total $55-60 in retail value. The remainder is used to cover administrative costs and our donation to a local charity in each neighbourhood. Any additional donations made during purchase will also be directed to each charity.
