Since first established in 1985, FoodShare has had a strong social justice focus, creating innovative, replicable solutions and empowering tools to combat universal food problems. We continue to play a leading role among thinkers in the food movement as a go-to organization and advocate for community food security.
Through actions and engagement, FoodShare works towards a more equitable and just food system participating in consultative processes and grassroots organizing to support discussions around what it would take for everyone to have access to affordable, healthy food in Toronto, across Ontario, and Canada.
