About this Event

A note about pricing

We’re aware that conferences can be exclusive spaces due to financial barriers. We actively seek to make this event as accessible as possible. Registration prices have been kept low and we are subsidizing registration for groups like nonprofit employees and community members. To realize this event, we have multiple ticket tiers you can choose from. Please select the one that best suits you.

About the conference

In Toronto, racialized folks are three times more likely to be food insecure and twice as likely to grow up in poverty. This gathering is focused on issues of race and oppression in the food system and food movement.

Dialogue around racism in the food movement will enable food sector workers to share strategies to tackle these issues, including changes to HR policies, recruitment systems, hiring structures, internal training systems, shifts in funding approaches, and more.

This food justice focused gathering seeks to:

  • centre the voices of Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC) working in Toronto’s food system
  • discuss how we can focus on and implement anti-oppression strategies in the food movement and food system
  • highlight and connect folks doing the work

Please join us if you:

  • are involved in the food movement
  • work in the nonprofit sector
  • are an academic working on issues around food
  • work in the corporate sector, involved in CSR efforts and building anti-oppression strategies

We're excited to have Karen Washington (Rise & Root Farm) as our keynote speaker.
