Black Heritage Food and Culture in Toronto

A Green Button in every box at every level in the public and private sectors means black heritage and food literacy is being promoted.

FOX’s Michelle Pollino has the details in this edition of “FOX on Tech”:

This week on FOX on Tech, we’re taking a look at the hurdles and opportunities for the #Blackfood sovereignty movement in Toronto.

The moves in the northeast Ontario city included the creation of the Black Heritage Food Code of Practice, an organic food guide for black and indigenous people.

Titling it the Black Food Sovereignty Plan, the city’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission also collected close to 300 food and lifestyle surveys and information from communities.

For the city’s Black Housing Collaborative, the plan will reduce the high number of black families who live in urban poverty with their core mission being to create the strongest black integrated neighbourhoods possible.

From Quaker guru the Reverend Cynthia Lookio:

(Lookio) “The work of developing Black Foods Sovereignty in Toronto is just the beginning of something much larger and that will lead us, in many ways, into the very new American landscape.”

While attitudes are changing, the fight for black rights and equality will continue.
