Drake in the Community
Being a great Junction Triangle neighbour is part of our DNA
In keeping with our civic-minded spirit, a Drake priority from our very first day back on Queen West, Drake Commissary works to establish meaningful relationships with the local community, giving back through a number of important programs and initiatives. We’re partnering with Second Harvest and Fort York Food Bank on food recovery, offering our kitchen space to volunteers from Not Far From The Tree to preserve their locally foraged fruits + veggies, and working on a culinary mentorship program with Sketch, helping local youth develop key cooking skills. Join in with monthly events and workshops including cooking classes, with Ivy Knight, host of the popular 86’d Monday's series at The Drake Hotel, and a rotating series that highlight different international cuisines. Neighbours, let's get together over culinary experiences, artisan pop-ups, live musical performances, and really great food.
