A Canadian online food store is selling a “Dismantling White Supremacy” box, consisting of produce farmed by BIPOC and others.

The Good Food Box is a project created by Toronto “food justice” organization, FoodShare, who advocates for the “right to food” and works to “challenge the systemic barriers that keep people from accessing the food they need to thrive.”

Like many other online produce stores, consumers can purchase a number of carefully curated boxes of food that can be delivered to their door in the Canadian city, including fresh meat and organic produce. However, The Good Food Box has now stepped it up with their Dismantling White Supremacy produce box.

The box was designed to tackle “colonialism, anti-Black racism, and white supremacy,” and is “packed full of local, organic produce grown by farms that are led, run or owned by racialized folks,” with the box meant to help support “Black, Indigenous and [other] racialized communities… [who] remain under-represented and under-supported in farming.”

The selection includes standard produce, like carrots, potatoes, and lettuce, along with more exotic selections, such as: efo shoko, also known as Nigerian spinach; pak choi, a type of Chinese cabbage; shishito peppers, a “mildly spicy East Asian pepper.”

Altogether, the Dismantling White Supremacy produce box comes out to $58 Canadian, totalling approximately $45 at the time of writing.

Like other leftist organisations, FoodShare has declared their support for a vast number of radical social justice policies. Last year, FoodShare disavowed a “body positivity” statement that they had written only two years prior, denouncing the term as a whole as having been co-opted by “thin people, white folks, online influencers and corporations”:

As a food justice organization that believes in body liberation and fat acceptance, we do not support fatphobia in any of its forms, including where it intersects with systems of oppression such as white supremacy, settler colonialism, colourism, ableism, ageism, misogyny, queerphobia, classism, etc. Because we know that access to food is shaped by these systems, as well as people’s current material conditions and their lived experiences, we respect people’s choices on the foods they eat. We are challenging the idea that foods are ‘good’ or ‘bad,’ or that people are good or bad for eating certain foods.

    So this food company admits that whites are superior and having worked in Africa I would have to agree.
    Colonialism saved them from eating each other to extinction.
