What is Food Justice?
Food Justice is communities exercising their right to grow, sell and eat healthy food. Healthy food is fresh, nutritious, affordable, culturally-appropriate and grown locally with care for the well-being of the land, workers and animals. People practicing food justice leads to a strong local food system, self-reliant communities and a healthy environment.
What does the Food Justice Program do?
The Food Justice Program increases awareness and action around food and farm issues and advances policies for a thriving local food system. We do this through advocacy trainings, policy workshops, information-sharing, campaigns and more.
