Toronto Public Health to launch pop-up food markets
  
Dr. David McKeown, Toronto's Medical Officer of Health, will host a media event tomorrow to officially launch new pop-up food markets called Grab Some Good at subway stations across the city. The initiative, a collaboration with FoodShare and the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC), will bring fresh, healthy and culturally diverse foods to commuters as they move through their day.

Date: Thursday, May 26
Time: 1 p.m.
Location: Downsview subway station, 1035 Sheppard Ave. W.

Photo and interview opportunities involving the Grab Some Good food markets will be available with Councillor Josh Colle (Ward 15 Eglinton-Lawrence), Chair of the TTC, Dr. McKeown and Debbie Field, Executive Director of Foodshare.

Food plays a vital role in building healthy people, communities and cities. With millions of people using the TTC each day, Grab Some Good markets will provide important access points for nutritious and affordable food choices.

Toronto is Canada's largest city, the fourth largest in North America, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people.
