Good Food for All: Cooking & anti-oppression workshops  

Fusing a cooking class with anti-oppression training, these unique virtual workshops bring coworkers together to prepare a meal and consider their own role in the food system.

With fresh ingredients delivered right to each team member’s door, colleagues receive step-by-step cooking instructions and a guided discussion on the ways that forces such as racism and colonization have shaped how and what we eat.

This workshop series is designed to: 

Workshop Themes To Choose From

  1.  Putting Race on the Table:
    Your team will participate in anti-racist learning activities, with a focus on unpacking settler-colonialism and systemic racism in our food system. Dive deep into the interconnections between food justice and racial justice while learning to make homestyle Jamaican comfort food from scratch.
  2. Body Positive Baking:
    This experience will guide you step-by-step through some sweet treats that you can share with your loved ones (or keep for yourself). Learn how to make the perfect holiday cookie while engaging in food-justice based discussions around body policing, weight stigma, and body positivity.
  3. Reducing Your ‘Foodprint’:
    Interested in learning more about the environmental impacts of our food system? This session will explore the concept of a ‘foodprint’ – prompting conversations about both the environmental and social factors that we should consider when making food choices. Putting this into practice, participants will learn how to do some quick at-home fridge canning as a way of reducing food waste (think pickles, chutney, and jams galore).
