Support Indigenous Food Sovereignty with NishDish

After three years, NishDish, an indigenous cafe and marketeria, is closing its Bloor St. storefront. 

TFPC Member, Chef Johl Whiteduck Ringuette, started NishDish as a catering company 15 years ago and has since become a well-known voice for Indigenous Food Sovereignty. 

With many large events and restaurants not being able to operate, NishDish was hit hard by COVID19. Now in a period of transition, NishDish is looking for the community’s support so that they can continue to be a venue for cultural reclamation, celebration, and vital education about Indigenous Food Sovereignty.

NishDish has set up a GoFundMe campaign to help cover costs during the pandemic and as they transition. https://www.gofundme.com/f/nishdish-contingency?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=p_cp%20share-sheet
