Episode 3: How The Abibiman Project is Tackling Food Insecurity One African Dish at a Time | Urban Limitrophe Podcast #cities #foodsecurity #podcast


In this episode, I discuss a bit about the impact of food insecurity in cities with Chef Rachel Adjei, the founder of The Abibiman Project. The Abibiman Project is an initiative started by Rachel in October 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, that uses African cuisine and ingredients to help promote social justice and reduce food insecurity in Toronto's black community. Through the project, Rachel sells African dishes, spices, teas, chocolates, and more, and all proceeds go towards the Afri-Can FoodBasket, a non-profit that through its various programs helps promote food sovereignty and justice for Toronto's Black community. 

In this episode, you'll learn about:

  • How The Abibiman Project got started and has grown
  • Food security and its impact on newcomers
  • The role of cultural appropriateness of food in food justice
  • How Rachel uses food to build community
  • and much more!
