FoodShare Toronto is hosting an online panel discussion, Black Women on Black Food Sovereignty, on Tuesday, June 30, from 2 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.

The panel will feature four Black women leading the call for Black food sovereignty in Canada, the U.S.A., and the United Kingdom. “Through our panelists’ uniquely valuable perspectives and experiences,” the Eventbrite page shares, “we’ll explore what Black food sovereignty means, why it is important, and how we can collectively work to advance it.”


The panel will be moderated by Rosie Mensah, a Toronto based Registered Dietician and member of the FoodShare Board of Directors. The event will include ASL translation.
