Body Liberation and Fat Acceptance Baking

This two-hour 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 a delicious, seasonal galette or pie while engaging in food-justice-based discussions around body policing, weight stigma, body liberation, and fat acceptance. Learn how factors like white supremacy, anti-Black racism, and ableism intersect with body policing.

    Asam Ahmad (he/him)

    Asam (he/him) grew up in Scarborough in a high-rise, mostly disconnected from the land and knowing very little about how plants are cultivated and our food harvested. This early experience informs all of their food justice work and situates their teaching practice and pedagogy within a critically anti-oppressive, working class and feminist lens. Asam loves to facilitate conversations that dig deep into the roots of food insecurity among communities across Turtle Island, and enjoys nurturing spaces that can hold multiple truths in dialogue with each other. Asam believes in the power of food to speak across all kinds of differences, and in the power of plants in returning us to good relations with the land. In their spare time, you can find Asam biking through the Humber Valley or at a farmer’s market near you. He is currently the Food Justice Educator for Community Learning and Engagement Program at FoodShare Toronto.
