PROMOTE JUSTICE

Food justice is about making sure all people have access to fresh, healthy, affordable, ethically-produced, and culturally appropriate food. Food Justice can be as small as the nutrients in a carrot or as large as global climate change. You can make an impact beyond at the grocery store or in the polling booth by supporting local and fairly traded products, living wages for food workers, access to garden space, and access to healthy food for everyone.
