Grocery Gift Cards from the TDSB

If your child was attending Cordella, H J Alexander or Maple Leaf Public Schools before the COVID-19 emergency, you may be eligible for a $50 gift card for groceries. You can register online here

These are the schools from York South-Weston identified for Phase 1 – as more funds are secured, additional schools will be added to the list. Each family from these schools are eligible for a $50 card per TDSB child. Once families have registered online, grocery cards will be mailed directly to the address they provide. The TDSB recognizes that completing the registration form may be challenging for some, and, for those without internet, impossible. We need your help to support our communities in this initiative and help ensure they are able to access these cards. If you are completing the form FOR a family, please use this link.
