Join OKT for a lively food justice discussion this Saturday

Screen Shot 2014-11-18 at 2.18.26 PMEven if you missed the first week of our Food Justice class, you can still join us this Saturday as we continue our discussion about the current food system. You can get caught up by reading our Food Justice handouts https://oktjustice.org/resources/hand-outs-and-zines/okt-food-justice-series/.
In week one we looked at part of the documentary, Feeding Frenzy: The Food Industry, Marketing & the Creation of a Health Crisis. In addition, we discussed the basic principles of Food Justice and began to look at the historical factors that have determined the kind of food system we currently have.
In week two we will dissect the current food system, by looking at all aspects of the system, from seed to plate and everything in between. Having a clear understanding to how the current food system functions is necessary if we are to create a just and sustainable response.
For those who want to share food during the food justice class, we invite them to bring a dish or beverage to share, while we have lively conversation. Join us at the Garfield Park Lodge, 334 Burton SE, from 10 a.m. to noon this Saturday, Nov. 22. The five-week series continues through December 13.
