OKT “Bike the Foodscape” event a fun and informative success

bike tourOn Saturday, 15 people participated in our Food Landscape, Food Justice Bike Tour. The tour started at the Southeast Area Farmer’s Market and made stops in a 2 mile radius, talking about our food system, food insecurity, how the food system perpetuates racism, poverty and poor health. We discussed food access and who makes the decisions about kinds of foods are in which neighborhoods. We also visited an OKT home grower and the garden site of a vendor at the Southeast Area Farmer’s Market, Mr. Henry, an immigrant from Liberia. His garden plot is featured in the picture. We also talked about the work of Our Kitchen Table, our recently created Food Justice series and the importance of working towards Food Sovereignty. Thanks for everyone who participated and helped us promote this event!
