WHAT IS
BLACK FOOD  SOVEREIGNTY?

Black food sovereignty is the right of people of African descent to access healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems. Food sovereignty is, therefore, a holistic, healthy and sustainable approach for communities to address chronic food insecurity.

“The Toronto Black Food Sovereignty Plan is based on a recommendation from the Toronto Action Plan to Confront Anti-Black Racism to improve food access for low-income, Black Torontonians. The Plan’s recommendations also address food insecurity issues outlined in TO Prosperity, the City of Toronto’s 20-year Poverty Reduction Strategy.”

Deputy Mayor Michael Thompson (Scarborough Centre), Chair of the Economic and Community Development Committee
