Community Kitchen on Accessibility, Food Justice and Disability Justice
Access to affordable, sustainable, historically and culturally relevant, and healthy food are considered essential for Food Justice. At the same time, Disability Justice challenges us to re-conceptualize how health and healthy eating are framed, as well as our relationships to cooking and eating. This Community Kitchen will introduce attendees to disability justice, food justice, and the intersections between the movements. We will centre disabled people and disabled people’s experiences in our conversations about disability justice and food justice.
Join Students for Barrier-free Access, the Centre for Community Partnerships and Hart House for a night of conversation, cooking, eating and skill-sharing. The facilitators will also share kitchen hacks that make cooking more accessible.
