Shar-Dey Phipps-Walker
Indigenous Community Action Coordinator

Pronouns: she/her/hers

Dey is a member of Lac Seul First Nation and resides in Toronto.

Dey believes in the power of food as a meeting point – as a tool that creates space for people to come together. Dey will work as an Indigenous Action Coordinator which will give her the freedom to explore that space in relationships with communities across the city – cooking, eating, and learning together.

Her background in social justice brings an anti-oppressive, critical lens to the work she does around food, with a focus on engaging with food justice and sovereignty movements in meaningful ways. She is particularly interested in supporting grassroots initiatives that support BIPOC Communities with an emphasis on culture and connecting to the land through food.
