This recipe zine is in solidarity and support with Black and Indigenous led movements that address the importance of food sovereignty, mutual aid and food access, past and present. With mutual aid in mind, these communities have addressed the need to shift from charity models, and work together to make sure we all have access to food, care and wellbeing! 

The intention of this project is to learn about different accessibility approaches to cooking for our communities, taking care of each other through advocacy and justice. These include tools to make cooking more accessible, from funding materials for cooks, to thinking about cooking spaces, to linking organizations doing the work everyday!  

Food Access + Collective Care

Food insecurity is exacerbated by the precarity and lack of action in systems all around us. Since the outbreak of COVID19, it is estimated that food insecurity in Toronto is growing rapidly, due to mass unemployment, reduced income and lack of funding for drop-in community food networks. Impacts correlate to intersections of identity for Trans and Queer BIPOC communities, due to policing, criminalization and exclusion from economic freedom, within institutions of power that uphold white supremacy in Canada.
