Great Food for a Great Cause

Out of this World (OTW) is a social purpose enterprise located in downtown Toronto within the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH – the largest mental health and addictions facility in Canada) and has been operating for nineteen years. With 2 Cafes, 2 Kiosks and Multiple Catering services, OTW offers various stable, supportive employment opportunities for Consumer/Survivors – people with lived experience of Mental Health and Addiction, Homelessness, Trauma, Gender based violence, Criminal Justice and Refugees. We believe Social Enterprises By and For the community are an integral part of the economy, building pathways out of poverty and marginalization.



We provide a range of catering options and they can serve events from five to more than one hundred. For customers’ convenience, catering can be ordered online. All items are priced individually and there is space for comments and delivery instructions. OTW is also pleased to develop custom menus and assist in selecting the appropriate items and quantities for a customer’s event. Our catering offers a variety of baked goods; breakfast, lunch and dinner options; and a variety of hors d’ oeuvres and platters.

The cafes are a meeting place for community – patients, CAMH staff, survivors from all over the city, and the neighbourhood. It provides a model for community integration and building resilience into recovery – shared goals that CAMH, our anchor partner is committed to. We specialize in varied cuisines – with classic North American fare in our Stokes St. location, and culturally diverse food at our Queen St Location, made from scratch with fresh ingredients.


OTW staff presence throughout the hospital complex offers encouragement to current patients in their recovery journey. Our enterprises further reduce the social perception that Survivors are not capable or ready to participate in the workforce in a meaningful and dignified way. Supporters of OTW are supporting the community directly – revenue from our businesses directly pay the wages of our staff. A professional approach also shows that OTW can produce high quality goods and services while providing a valuable experience to the community at large.


We have 3 locations which provide a range of cafe and catering options serving events from 5 to more than one hundred
