Jane is passionate about using food as a tool to build solidarity across difference in communities. Jane sees food as essential to helping communities build resiliency, which she hopes to explore further as she pursues a Masters in Urban Planning at Ryerson University. Jane believes that reshaping ideas around food as a commodity and shifting perspectives of what spaces are “appropriate” for agriculture is key to building equitable, inclusive, culturally appropriate and accessible food systems. In the past year, she has worked as a facilitator in community kitchens, exploring storytelling as a medium in building solidarity. Outside of school, Jane enjoys dancing, bouldering, baking, and walking around the city. Through the TYFPC, Jane hopes to connect and engage with individuals passionate about food issues in our city.
