Access to Local Food in Francophone Canada: Antiracist and Decolonial Perspectives

Food Secure Canada asked two researchers working in Montreal, Leslie Touré Kapo and Dina Husseini, to reflect on equitable access to local and healthy food in francophone Canada, especially for racialized peoples. Leslie Touré Kapo is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Montreal and Dina Husseini is a community organiser.

Their work took FSC’s 2020 food policy action plan in the context of Covid-19, Growing resilience and equity, as a starting point, and offers anti-racist and decolonial perspectives as well as examples of initiatives especially from Quebec.
