Food Policy for Breakfast: Race, Racism and Food Justice: Advancing a More Equitable Food System in New York City
Part of our Spring 2015 Food Policy for Breakfast Seminar Series.
In celebration of Black History Month, this seminar will bring together academics and leaders in the food justice movement to discuss how race, racism and residential segregation influence access to healthy food and good food jobs in NYC. What promising approaches are emerging to reduce the impact of race and racism on healthy food access and other inequalities within our food system? What are opportunities for the food justice movement to find common ground with others working to end racism and other forms of inequality?
