Fabarnak is located on the main floor of The 519 Community Centre.
With an inventive daily menu and quality ingredients, we provide a healthy and delicious dining experience among friends. We work with our chefs and clients to create innovative menus designed to fit any event. Let us set the table - napkins, plates and utensils can be provided for your event.
We cater on-site at The 519 Community Centre (email us for our on-site catering menu) and throughout Toronto, providing meals for all occasions. We can also arrange bar service personnel, event rentals, and staffing resources for your event, either at The 519, or off-site.
Operated as a social enterprise, Fabarnak provides job opportunities and training to individuals with employment barriers, offering them a chance to work side by side with our team of professional chefs and front-of-house staff.
Fabarnak offers a structured, one-year training and employment program for those who have faced barriers to employment and are looking for a rewarding role within the hospitality industry.
Led by our team of industry professionals, Fabarnak's program is inclusive and non-judgemental. In the past, we've worked with trans youth undergoing a gender transition, newcomers to Canada with limited Canadian work experience, and young people in recovery from addiction.
