Media watchdog, community organizer, and point-person for OKT’s policy analysis, Jeff Smith will again lead this important look at how the industrial food system has created food apartheid and what we can do to further food justice.
Investigate the current food system and food policy, look at food justice responses around the country and discusses what a food justice and food sovereignty movement in West Michigan could look like. Whether you are a professional actively involved in local efforts to eliminate hunger and undernutrition or a lay person who wants to know what you can do to increase your neighborhood’s access to healthy foods, this class will open your eyes to how the industrial food complex works and how you can challenge it.
