FOOD JUSTICE

The food we eat is supposed to provide us with the vitality we need to care for and nourish ourselves, our community, and the planet.

For many of us right now,
this isn’t possible.

Communities are unable to stay healthy and thriving when fresh organic foods are inaccessible and unaffordable. Our current food system leaves vulnerable communities either plagued with a plethora of cheap unhealthy food options or are sometimes left in complete food scarcity.

Additionally, big agriculture is responsible for one-third of all greenhouse gas emissions. Industrial farming generates massive waste from chemical run-off and pesticides which degrade lands, desecrate waters, and cause illnesses.

Our food system is not only
poisoning our bodies, but is
poisoning the environment as well.

Increased pollution paired with less access to healthy foods is causing distress and diseases disproportionately to Black, Indigenous and communities of color. Food injustice exacerbates racial injustice — as big agriculture oppresses traditional Indigenuous land practices and has led to mass loss of Black land ownership.

Climate justice, social justice, and food justice are inextricably tied to one another.
