mural

The three major aspects of Food Justice:

  • Access to healthy, locally grow, fresh, culturally appropriate food
  • Living wage jobs for all food system workers – farmers, farmworkers, restaurant, food service, processing plant. . .
  • Closed and localized food systems through Community Control such as farm-to-table, community supported agriculture (C.S.A.), food cooperatives, faith-based initiatives, community organizations
