Food Justice & Equity

Additional information below to better understand food justice and equity

The Food Justice Movement works to ensure universal access to nutritious, affordable, and culturally-appropriate food for all, while advocating for the well-being and safety of those involved in the food production process.

The movement aims to address disparities in food access, particularly for communities of color and low-income communities, by examining the structural roots of our food system.

Food Justice addresses questions of land ownership, agricultural practices, distribution of technology and resources, workers’ rights, and the historical injustices communities of color have faced. Food Justice is closely intertwined with environmental justice and sustainability movements.
