YRFN’s Food and History, Through a BIPOC Lens program is an evolution of our Newcomer Kitchen, funded by Ontario Trillium Foundation. These programs use food as a vehicle for immigrant and new Canadians to integrate into and feel connected to their York Region communities.
The program acknowledges that the histories and cultures of BIPOC communities are not always heard and highlight them. It aims to educate and challenge mainstream views by exploring the history of food through the stories and voices of Black, Indigenous and People of Colour.
