In Their Words
Representatives from Indigenous groups, the Black community and many more share the stories of resistance and resiliency.
Since its beginnings with the Black Panthers, the Food Justice Movement and Racial Justice movement have been intertwined. Learn about how it all started and where it’s going.
Food Justice & Radical Justice
You can draw a direct line between slavery, Jim Crow, and the disproportionate rates of hunger among people of color today. Guests talk about transformational change that needs to happen at the government level.
Food Justice & Mental Health
Food insecurity can have devastating effects on the mental health of children. We heard about solutions for reducing the causes of hunger and associated stigma.
“The most offensive things someone could do to you is deny you a place at the table.”– Dr. Frederick Douglass Opie
Innovations in Food Justice & Equity | Oct 12, 2023 1:00pm – 2:00pm EDT
Now more than ever before, our food systems are being tested. Political and economic fallout from the pandemic and the accelerating pace of climate change have only worsened some of our most pressing and intractable challenges related to production and distribution of food and resources across the globe.
Data-informed innovation is unlocking some of our most complex challenges around food—from improving infrastructure and access to basic technology, to creating more equitable and efficient supply changes, and transforming agriculture. Communities are also thinking differently about how and why people experience food insecurity, driving forward new solutions to problems we once thought were unsolvable.
In this conversation, we’ll explore how innovators are changing the ways we produce, access, and share food.
