Bring Food Home October 23rd

As one of our four Bring Food Home 2019 regional events, with support from Whole Foods Market, FoodShare is hosting an event focused on Equity and Food Justice at Daniels Spectrum in Toronto’s Regent Park (585 Dundas Street East) on Wednesday, October 23rd, with Karen Washington as the keynote speaker.

This event will be open to 150 attendees, offered on a sliding scale model with prices varying from PWYC to $200 for corporate/foundation.

The event will share new and impactful findings from a research project, conducted by PROOF in collaboration with FoodShare, which looked at the intersectionality of race and food insecurity.

There will be a workshop on examining our unconscious bias, led by Sheliza Jamal. There will also be a panel on Equity & Food Justice in practice that will focus on individuals working within their own organizations to challenge racism and oppression. Panelists will share their experiences and discuss useful tools for embedding equity and food justice principles in their organization’s structure and operations.

Entertainment will include a performance from RAW and a post-event reception at the Paint Box Bistro.

Stay tuned for more information on this event, including registration details.
