Food Justice: At the Intersection of Food, Politics, Poverty, Public Health, and the Environment
Presenter: Bryant Terry, Author of Vegan Soul Kitchen and Winner of the 2015 James Beard Leadership Award
How can we provide healthy food choices for all Americans, regardless of income, geography or race? In this interactive talk, Bryant Terry shows us how the food we eat directly affects issues such as poverty, sustainability, and structural racism. How can we get healthier food into low income urban areas? What can each of us-- whether urban dweller or suburbanite-- do to eat healthier? And how will these choices affect everything from the environment to social justice? Fusing food justice and personal history, Terry shows us how to improve access to fresh food in our communities: whether that community is your campus, your workplace, your neighborhood, or just your own set of friends gathered in the kitchen.
