About Black Vegans of Toronto

Our group, Black Vegans of Toronto, is committed to improving the health of black people in Toronto and surrounding areas. We believe that a significant pathway to optimum health for black people is to achieve tangible levels of food sovereignty. For us, this means having control over growing food that connects us culturally and ensuring that this food is affordable and consistently available to all, regardless of where they live or their socioeconomic status. Our Atiba farm project is a critical part of our work towards black food sovereignty.
