what we do


We help build a just and sustainable food system by working with Toronto's diverse young communities to find solutions to food insecurity. We then raise awareness of these issues through our seat at the Toronto Food Policy Council, by making deputations at City Hall, or through our advocacy work with other food justice organizations.


We mobilize youth to create change through our online network, at bi-monthly community meetings, by providing an opportunity for youth to build upon their food activism by becoming a council member, by connecting with youth throughout the city, and by facilitating committee work.


We engage youth in food policy work by facilitating Food Policy 101 workshops at schools and community groups, by providing youth an opportunity to become community members and attend meetings on local food policy issues, and by providing a platform for youth to share their academic and creative work in a youth food journal.
