Unlock the Potential of Food | Ingredients for a Healthier Tomorrow
Food sovereignty is important to me because I believe that on this big globe, food systems differ amongst regions, and it is key that people are able to access food which is not only healthy and planet-friendly, but also food which is culturally appropriate to them. My parents and siblings immigrated from Ghana, West Africa, making me the only Canadian-born in my family. Growing up it was key that my mother provided us with food which was culturally sound to us, and thankfully with importation we were still able to acquire key ingredients that come from the motherland. However, what my family lost was growing their own food, harvesting it, and the sacredness of all food. All I had ever known was the supermarket, but food sovereignty is not just about the food system – it’s about the consumers and producers as well.
