Sheldomar Elliott

Sheldomar is passionate about food justice work that tackles issues around food insecurity and achieving food sovereignty for marginalized communities. His focus is on how Black, Brown, and Indigenous communities are able to acquire food sovereignty within our current food system which continues to oppress these exact peoples. As a Ryerson University student studying Environment and Urban Sustainability, he recognizes the urgency needed to change and/or reform our food system through policy and advocacy work to ensure a sustainable one for years to come. Sheldomar has experience in organizing food events that bring together food activists and champions from around the GTA to facilitate discussion around what the future of food could look like through an equitable and anti-oppressive lens while remaining inclusive to folks of varying identities. On his free time, he loves to travel the world and enjoys the simplest joy of being present with his friends, family, and life.
