Food Sovereignty

This program is more than education; it's an exploration of the interconnected stories that shape our culinary heritage, community challenges, and pathways to a healthier future.

Food apartheid is deeply rooted in systemic racism, economic disparities, and geographic challenges, creating an environment where residents face not only limited access to healthy food but also higher rates of diet-related illnesses. The significance of addressing this issue is profound—it’s about dismantling barriers that contribute to health disparities, fostering social and economic equity, and empowering communities to control their food systems.

a transformative journey through food, culture, and community

Each month, we delve into crucial themes—from understanding the intricate connections between food, addiction, and trauma to analyzing the role of language in liberating discussions about food disparities. We trace the history of agriculture to agribusiness, emphasizing the socio-economic implications and advocating for a healthier lifestyle through movement, joy, and community well-being.

 

Our objectives go beyond knowledge; they encompass cultural sensitivity, empowerment, liberation through language, and advocacy for sustainable and healthy food practices. Together, we celebrate the vibrant tapestry of ‘Food Sovereignty,’ sowing the seeds of positive change for a more connected, healthy, and culturally rich future.
