Social enterprises are attracting more attention. While there are no activities common to all social enterprises, in most cases it refers to people drawing on business techniques to find solutions to social problems.
More and more, social enterprises are tackling food insecurity and food justice in communities across Toronto. Through creating opportunities for access, education, or skills development, these projects, some youth-led, are working in Toronto to address food insecurity.
Through a hands-on activity, tour of Scadding Court’s Community Centre (SCCC), and panel discussion bringing together diverse perspectives, we will discuss and explore opportunities for youth as well as the transformative potential of food social enterprises in our city!
