Em, Jane, Sophie, and Zartasha from the Education Committee this year have been hard at work collecting the diverse stories and artworks from youth across the City of Toronto to compile this year’s publication.
About Volume 3
In the Fall 2020, the TYFPC put out a call for artwork from youth (30 and under) that explores food justice, food access, family, ancestry, migration, familial recipes, and community. This included all forms of print media including: photography, paintings, collage, poetry, flash fiction, short essays, recipes, and more – anything and everything that calls us to laugh, mourn, learn, question, and/or celebrate our respective and collective roots and the worlds that bloom from them.
We then held a virtual arts night in late January to encourage youth in our community to come together, talk openly about food justice, and express their creativity. To learn more about the event and see some of the talented creations click here.
In the end, our call for artists received 40 submissions from youth as young as 6 years old!
