Helping the Homeless, one sandwich at a time - The Grilled Cheese Social Eatery

It all started with a sandwich given to a homeless man who slept in the door of a nearby bank

The Grilled Cheese Social Eatery is a small eclectic restaurant on Dunlop Street in central Barrie. It is very visible, and clearly popular with all ages. In addition to its quirky and unique nature, this little diner is also well-known for being a hub of social conscience that provides customers with the option to do their part to help the most vulnerable people in our society.

A customer wanted to help and asked how much to pay for the next one?

Randy Aylwin accomplishes this by offering his patrons the opportunity to buy discounted sandwiches and coffee, that are then put into a suspension program, for distribution to the homeless and needy.

Now it is supported by people from every walk of life:
from an eighty year old woman leaving toonies to children raising funds with bake sales
