Empowering Communities Through
Sustainable Food Connections


Strengthening Toronto's Food System
& Community

Zawadi Connections focuses on building resilient connections to our food source to
create a more sustainable and secure food system.

Welcome to Zawadi Connections, where our passion for a sustainable future drives us to strengthen the bond between the earth, our farmers, and your table. Based in Toronto, we are dedicated to reshaping how communities interact with their food sources. Join us in our mission to create a resilient, sustainable, and accessible food system for all.

We can build a more resilient and self-sufficient community by supporting local agriculture and strengthening the connections between producers and consumers.

Our food system is facing several challenges, including the impacts of climate change, the overuse of resources, and the loss of biodiversity. To create a more resilient food system, we need to rethink how we produce, distribute, and consume food, and build stronger connections to our food source.

The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the importance of having resilient connections to our food source. Disruptions in the global food supply chain have caused shortages and price spikes and have reminded us of the value of having a diverse, local food system.

One of the challenges of our modern food system is the need for more connection between consumers and their food source. Many people need to be made aware of where their food comes from and the consequences of their food choices on the environment, local economy, and community.
