Fozia runs a Somali supper club called Arawelo Eats. The supper club is a platform for thinking, researching and exploring racism and British identity via the medium of food – particularly in response to Brexit. Fozia has written a paper about this for the Oxford Symposium on Food & Cookery 2017, which was published in July 2018. In 2019 she was one of OFM’s Top 50.

This has also involved her creating workshops for Keep It Complex feminist art collective in London, a range of art/museum galleries including Serpentine Gallery, Jerwood Project Space and Museum of London.

Fozia has been featured on BBC Radio 4 Food Programme, Oxford Symposium on Food & Cookery Ox Tales podcast, Food 52, Crumbs Magazine, Vice Munchies and Bristol 24/7. She is currently working on commission from the Colonial Countryside Project unpicking some of the colonial legacies of food & empire at Dyrham Park, National Trust.
