The purpose of the meeting is to think and plan about how we can take our work further on food justice in Coventry. We will have an introductory workshop to discuss what ‘food justice’ means here and elsewhere. We will also discuss specific opportunities that have arisen that we could work on together, including:
- Organising events, workshops or walks related to food justice
- Making a video(s) about food justice in Coventry using a participatory video approach
- Engaging with Coventry City Council to influence how it deals with food issues
Coventry Food Justice Network (CFJN) is open to all those who are interested in food justice issues in Coventry. The network provides a forum to get to know each other, establish new connections, to celebrate the work of organisations working on food and social justice, and to create a space for mutual learning and collaboration. Over the last year, we have held meetings, set up a website and organised the first ‘food justice walk’. www.coventryfoodjustice.uk.
The network is currently being convened by the Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience at Coventry University, the Coventry Men’s Shed, EGO Performance Company, the Coventry Refugee and Migrant Centre, The Pod and Food Union.
