After an initial round of getting to know few of the different organisations/people working on food-related initiatives in Coventry, we are meeting today (30th July 2015) — to discuss the Food Justice walk… If you are interested in joining us for future events, please get in touch.
Food Justice is a call for a fairer food system. It considers food to be a human right. It involves communities working together to build more just and sustainable food systems. It questions the limits of charity-based emergency food aid as the dominant solution to food poverty. It challenges how differences based on race, class, gender and culture determine who benefits and who is put at risk from how food is grown, processed, distributed, accessed & eaten. It involves collective practical and political learning and action amongst a diversity of citizens and especially those most excluded from the current food system.
