Food Justice:
Join us for discussions centered around this timely topic.  During the Great Depression, Americans grappled with hunger and malnourishment at the same time that the government struggled with questions of food production and distribution.  Sadly, many of these problems have resurfaced as the nation grapples with the effects of the Great Recession and a growing inequality of wealth.   In our first event, co-sponsored by the progressive news magazine, In These Times, we contemplate how food justice advocates may work with, rather than dictate to, communities that lack access to healthy and inexpensive food.
