Hello pals! This lecture is all about food justice. As a nutritionist, i really do believe that food justice needs to be at the centre of our nutrition conversations. But its not something i was really taught at university, but it affects many clients of mine, and even myself as someone who experienced food insecurity as a child.
Food access, food policy, the role of capitalism and food justice all impact health and wellbeing. Food accessibility (having financial and physical access to a wide variety of foods) is just the start. Many people don't have access to tools to prepare/cook food with, some people don't have safe ways to store food as well. In this lecture we discuss all of this and the following:
- What is food justice?
- Food insecurity + What can we do?
- Racism and food justice
- How does food justice impact health?
- Capitalism and food justice
