meet the flockers
There’s a lot going on this summer at FLOCK! This is where we’ll be posting the latest events, brand new menu items, shoutouts to our FLOCKstars and the press we’ve received lately.
FLOCK Partners with Deboer’s
We’re super excited to be able to announce the long awaited partnership with Deboer’s as our new chicken supplier! We have always prided ourselves in sourcing and serving the BEST Natural Raised Antibiotic-Free Birds!!!
There’s a lot to consider, but we set out to find a supplier who could 100% Guarantee and deliver Humanely Raised Chickens in Ontario and satisfy our needs for our customers.
Now, a little bit about DeBoer’s!!! They incorporate core sustainable farming initiatives that we feel were the best way to help not only our environment, but also the local farming industry. DeBoer’s wants the best stress free environment, welfare of animal and humane care available.
They give their chickens the time to complete their normal growth cycle, making sure that they are grain-fed with corn, soy and wheat with natural vitamins and minerals. They are also proud to be part of GAP: Global Animal Program. A Non Profit organization of farmers, scientists, retailers, manufactures and animal advocates all collaborating with a common purpose to improve farm animal welfare.
You could say it’s like an anti-bullying program for chicken.
Of course the birds still come RWA: Raised without Antibiotics and Halal Certified but now we can truly feel confident that we are offering a quality bird to all our guests all of the time. Sourcing higher quality ingredients that are nutrient-packed with healthy proteins and essential minerals and vitamins do come at a cost but we are committed to sourcing the healthiest options. We hope all our loyal Flockers feel the same!
Pssst… did you know our menu has changed?
It’s true! We’ve added some delicious new sides for you to choose from. We kept getting lots of feedback from our loyal Flockers that you wanted more options and variety. You spoke, we listened!
You can now order a Chicken Meal and pick one from any of our five sides! Do you want the traditional sweet potatoes or roasted spiced beets? Green falafels, a simple green salad or steamed broccoli? Plus you always get cole slaw on the side too.
Sadly, we did have to say goodbye to our Fancy Flock, BUT we did bring back the Wally for all you blue cheese lovers! It’s our unique version of the Classic Waldorf salad.
We also made some very minor adjustments to our beloved Barbary Flock just in case you were asking yourself if something tasted different… it does! If you want to check out our new menu in more detail, click the link below and be sure and let us know what you think!
Brunch has taken on a new meaning at FLOCK!
We have officially launched our brunch menu at our Harbord St. location.
We love the traditional staples like eggs benny but why not put a Flock twist on it and have some Chicken and Waffles or Huevos Rancheros?
We don’t think summer can get any better than sitting on our patio sipping some classic Flocktails and having brunch with friends.
Brunch starts at Harbord every Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 3pm.
Get outside and enjoy summer while it’s still here!
Flock Loves Heart On & Planned Parenthood
We had the pleasure of donating catering sized salads to a great initiative supporting Planned Parenthood that was organized by Heart On in Toronto. Heart On is a Toronto screening series that celebrates the work of emerging female filmmakers and artists.
FLOCK loves to encourage diversity & acceptance – especially when the focus is supporting health centres that are offering education and services for our community.
For more information on this initiative or Planned Parenthood in Canada:

FLOCKTAILS on the patio
Summer in Toronto is all about eating outside! Come visit us for lunch or dinner and lounge on our large outdoor patio at our Harbord & Spadina location. The patio is open from 11am until 10pm every night. Stop by for a FLOCKtail or order some Sangria to share with friends on a hot summer night.
You read it here first: We are expanding!
“Flock, which operates five restaurants in Toronto, is preparing to open its sixth location in the months to come at the Yonge Sheppard Centre in North York. A seventh location is planned for Yonge and Eglinton next year.”

In June, we sold two of our most popular grab-and-go salads (the Boho and Harvest) at Summerhill Market. Summerhill Market is a family run business offering prepared foods & pastries, catering and gourmet groceries.
