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.
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.
