Uplift Kitchen TO is food initiative created to serve the Black community in Toronto and surrounding areas. During this time of global unrest, we want to serve any Black identifying folks who have been affected by the pandemic and are also suffering at the hands of systemic and overt racism. Lawrence and Carson are community activists in Toronto who have dedicated their lives to organizational planning and sustainability. Lawrence is a Black woman working with SKETCH and has worked with food banks and other organizations. Carson is an Indigenous woman who has spent most of her life educating and helping youth affected by HIV and AIDS and teaching culturally-sensitive curriculums on how people can live a healthy life.
