Join the TYFPC and Let’s Talk Food UofT on March 3rd from 6-7:30 pm for a discussion about student food activism across the Toronto region!
Food insecurity is an issue that disproportionately impacts post-secondary students- with nearly 40% of students experiencing food insecurity prior to COVID-19. Still, there remains a large disconnect between student needs and values, and the kind of food system that is curated on campus. In response, students are often leading the charge to advocate for and increase access to affordable, healthy, just, and sustainable food on campuses.
This virtual panel discussion will highlight several amazing student food leaders to better understand the food issues facing students and ways to create change.
The discussion will be moderated by a chef, author and activist Joshna Maharaj who has been a longtime ally of the student food movement and brings years of experience transforming campus food in higher education.
