Food justice 101 - Masterclass

Let's explore food justice, health, racism, capitalism and food insecurity

 

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

Hi there!! My name is Maddie (she/her) and I am a registered Nutritionist, educator and student therapist from a little beach town in south west Australia. I am the founder of Messy Health which has grown from an Instagram account where I share my tips and tricks on nutrition, intuitive eating, binge eating, and more, to a private practice and online school!
If you are interested, I have a bachelor of food and nutrition science, currently undertaking a master of counselling and will be starting my PhD next year. I have worked in the Australian and American media as a nutrition advisor, and as a researcher in gut health! I currently work clinically and facilitate our food therapy program with my amazing clients.
Messy Health is a company dedicated to creating an educational space for those working on their mental health, healing their relationship with food, feeling peaceful about their body, and taking back joy and pleasure in their life. Through my journey of developing peace around food and my body, coupled with my education in nutrition, food science, and psychotherapy, I have the knowledge and understanding to help facilitate healing around food, body image, the body, and how they all intersect.
Although the majority of my academic training is in nutrition and food science, I am very passionate about sexual health. sex positivity, body image, relational health, trauma and addiction, and all aspects of mental health and I plan to continue exploring these areas while studying mental health counselling. I practice through a feminist, social justice, Health At Every Size lens and hold inclusivity and accessibility as a top priority.
