Scarborough is one of Toronto’s most diverse places, rich in cultural pride and grassroots organizing. Built during the height of suburban development, the area was planned for cars and big grocery stores without much thought for the public realm and neighborhood places. Scarborough residents were heavily impacted by COVID-19, and food insecurity has become a primary concern. Led by Scarborough resident Howard Tam, Eat More Scarborough, and informed by community work led by members of Scarborough Food Network, this tour will take participants through various Scarborough neighborhoods, making stops at malls, plazas, informal markets, supermarkets and grassroots initiatives. Participants are invited to taste Scarborough foodways while discussing how we learn from what the private sector has built in response to the lack of public infrastructure to inform new public market models in Scarborough.
