June is National Indigenous History Month, a time meant to reflect on the history, heritage and rich diversity of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples across Canada. It is also a time to honour and celebrate the contributions of Indigenous peoples across the country. For many working with Indigenous communities it serves an additional purpose in acknowledging both large and grass-roots organizations striving to create positive change in their communities and Canada at large.

Melana Roberts, a municipal and federal food policy advisor, public speaker and community advocate based in Toronto posits that it is about more than addressing hunger, it's about combating anti-Black racism and intergenerational poverty through a multi-pronged intergovernmental approach, grounded in the right to food.
