Hi, I'm Rosie.

I’m a Registered Dietitian and Food Justice Activist based in Toronto, Ontario. I merge my knowledge of food and nutrition to look at health through an anti-oppressive, social justice, and intersectional lens.  

 

My philosophy.

Health is holistic.

All foods fit.

Food is more than the nutrients it provides.

Healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes.

Cultural food is healthy food.

Get to know me.

My early life experiences with food insecurity left a major impact on my life. These experiences led me to develop a commitment to food justice for all, while centering the voices of those most marginalized. 

At 24 years old, I joined the FoodShare Toronto Board of Directors, and became the Co-Chair of the Advocacy Committee.  

Recognizing that there weren’t any resources available to support dietitians and other nutrition professionals to practice in a way that was anti-racist and anti-oppressive, I created the CEDAR course.

After seeing the racial injustices in 2020 and the increasing prevalence of food insecurity during the COVID-19 pandemic, I co-founded Dietitians for Food Justice, to encourage more dietitians to become involved in dismantling systems of oppression that contribute to poor health and food injustice.

I am one of the few Black dietitians in Canada; and I’m on a mission to change that.
