My vision for Black food sovereignty in Toronto is the conversations. The upsurge of young Black folks farming, opening restaurants, shows we are leading the revolutions, we just have to start to look at how we can annually come together and talk about what we need to do. It may sound simple, but we got to look for the solutions. We are realizing our dreams, and we’re doing the work that needs to be done. We’re not doing this on our own, we want our community to work with us. This is a communal conversation. We are mobilizing for Black Food Sovereignty.

Anan Lololi, Chair, Black Food Sovereignty Working Group
