Food Justice Walk Planning Meeting, September 2015

Coventry Food Justice emerged from conversations with individuals, groups and agencies in the local community who are engaged in tackling the socially and environmentally unsustainable aspects of our food system. Our aims are to:

  • bring visibility to the community food justice work underway in Coventry
  • link up organisations, agencies, groups and individuals to build a stronger support network
  • generate discussion and action towards a fairer food system through participatory action research and participatory learning

We plan to organize a range of activities and projects including events, food justice walks, a web-space, videos that will help us meet these aims.

DSC_2336Coventry Food Justice is currently supported by socially engaged researchers at the Centre for Agroecology Food Justice, Water and Resilience (CAWR) at Coventry University and is being shaped by the wider food justice community in Coventry. If you are involved in any way across any aspect of the local food system in Coventry intersecting with issues of social justice, then do get in touch — we would love to hear from you.

Food Justice

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.
