When we think of the Canadian landscape, we often think of abundance. A land that is vast and home to many natural resources, full of space that according to the 2016 Census of Agriculture, hosts 193, 492 farms. Although our farm space is abundant, well over four million people in Canada are currently experiencing food insecurity. This week on our podcast, we talked to Victoria Foote, Director of Development and Communications at FoodShare Toronto. FoodShare is a food justice organization that has been around for over 35 years. FoodShare strives for food justice by collaborating with and listening to those most affected by poverty and food insecurity – Black, Indigenous, People of Colour, and People with Disabilities, to inspire long-term solutions to an equitable and nutritious food system for everyone.
