Talking About Race Matters – Join the Conversation with Karen Washington

Food Justice is More than Growing Food and Feeding People

People in poor urban and rural communities are told that if they want food security, all they have to do is grow their own vegetables, give up soda and exercise, as if, by magic, eating vegetables and drinking water are going to solve the problems in the food system, without looking at the institutional. environmental and structural determinants that reinforce racism in today’s society. How has the COVID-19 changed the way people now think?

La justicia alimentaria es más que cultivar alimentos y alimentar a las personas.

A las personas de las comunidades pobres urbanas y rurales se les dice que si quieren seguridad alimentaria, lo único que tienen que hacer es cultivar sus propias verduras, dejar las gaseosas y hacer ejercicio, como si por arte de magia comer verduras y beber agua fueran a resolver los problemas en un sistema alimentario, sin mirar antes a los factores estructurales, institucionales y del medio que refuerzan el racismo en nuestra sociedad actual. ¿Cómo ha cambiado el COVID-19 la forma de pensar de la gente?
