Black Women on Black Food Sovereignty

Mark your calendars, because on June 30 at 2pm EST, FoodShare will be hosting a panel titled "Black Women on Black Food Sovereignty" on Zoom!

This is an important panel for FoodShare as our work includes acknowledging and actively working to dismantle systemic forms of oppression that are omnipresent in the food system. Through this conversation, we will discuss the ways in which colonialism, anti-Black racism, capitalism, white supremacy, and patriarchy are among the organizing principles embedded in the food system


This panel will feature:

  • Karen Washington (USA) - Community food advocate and Co-founder of Black Urban Growers
  • Leticia Deawuo (Canada) - Black Creek Community Farm Director
  • Deirdre (Dee) Woods (UK)- Good food ‘action-ist’ and Co-founder of Granville Community Kitchen
  • Cheyenne Sundance (Canada)- Founder of Sundance Harvest Urban Farm

Our panel moderator is Rosie Mensah, a Toronto based Registered Dietician and member of the FoodShare Board of Directors.

We also have a beautifully illustrated tote bag available for purchase created by the wonderful Megan Leonard who also drew the event poster!

Tickets are now available for free on Eventbrite. Please share with your networks, family, and friends who may like to join!
