Celebrating Diversity with Fat Girl Food Squad: Food, Feminism & Fat Movie Night

As a blogger and an urbanite, I love to uncover new places to visit and activities to do in the city! Ever since the Fat Girl Food Squad Pop-Up Sale (see post HERE), I have been spending more and more time with the FGFS crew! The team is made up of many strong, dynamic and unique women, and I am grateful that I have had the chance to get to know them. Since I started hanging out with these ladies (and their lads) I have come to a greater awareness of events in Toronto (especially in the body positive community)!

On July 17th at the Belljar Cafe in Roncesvalles (Toronto), they hosted the first of three movie nights which promote the central tenants of FGFS' foundation: food, feminism and fat. July was "food month" and featured the film A Place at the Table. For any of you who have yet to hear of or see A Place at the Table, it is a wonderful documentary about food scarcity in the United States.

This documentary shed a lot of light on the epidemic of obesity and insufficient food supply, especially in rural United States. As a social work student, even I was surprised how minimal the social support is in the United States. We are very fortunate that in Canada, we have a solid support system and safety net in place. However, there is ALWAYS room for improvement.

We indulged in beverages and free popcorn while we watched the film. There was lots of chatting before the film, as well as after and honestly it was a great, positive environment to be in for the evening.
