Food Knows No Borders
Food Box Delivery Project for Undocumented, Queer/Trans/2S, Deaf/Disabled, and Indigenous Folx
Vivimos Juntxs, Comemos Juntxs (VJCJ) and the Toronto Queer Film Festival (TQFF) are collaborating in the launch of Food Knows No Borders: Food Box Delivery Program!
Food Knows No Borders is a mutual aid program run collaboratively by TQFF and Vivimos Juntxs, Comemos Juntxs for all undcomented folx, Indigenous people, Deaf/disabled, and queer/trans/2S people in the GTA that is structured on principles of decolonization and building solidarity among communities that our arbitrary colonial borders attempt to divide and pit against each other.
VJCJ is a migrant-led group of former and current undocumented people, as well as allies, who are fighting for a city where we have power over the resources and services we need to live a dignified life. TQFF is a non-profit organization dedicated to queer, trans, and 2 Spirit community building through media arts exhibitions, education, and mutual aid.
Over the last several months, we have heard from our communities that accessing food is one of the main issues people are struggling with during this pandemic. As a way to address this issue, we launched this program in August 2020 and are currently making weekly deliveries of food, PPE, and other necessities to 80-100 households across the GTA!
This program serves undocumented, Indigenous, Deaf/disabled, and queer/trans/2 Spirit people in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). Unfortunately, however, we are currently at capacity. Please visit our resource guide for additional resources available.
