Bobby Khorasani
Social Enterprise Committee, Chair

Bobby joined FoodShare’s Board of Directors in 2017. He believes that nutritious food should be easily accessible to all, no matter where you live or how much you make. He is encouraged by the growing awareness around healthy eating in our city today and believes FoodShare is playing a big role in accomplishing that.

“We have brought into question the sustainability and justice in our food system; we can no longer ignore the gimmicks of marketing that succeeds in dumping harmful food into our communities. The way we produce our food is important and we need to raise awareness and promote healthy eating. We need to improve the way we eat and everyone must be a part of that.”

Bobby completed his MSc. International Development before beginning his career in the private organic food sector, joining two successful start-ups in the GTA. He sits on the board of a successful organic food manufacturing company based in Toronto his father co-founded in 1988. He also sits on an advisory board for a venture fund that focuses on food start-ups with a strong social and/or environmental mandate.
