For week three of OKT’s Food Justice class, we will explore the exploitative nature of our current food system, both the exploitation of human labor and of animals. Workers in the food system are some of the most exploited in the country and most don’t even make minimum wage, since minimum wage laws don’t apply to most food workers. (See our food justice handout on food workers) In addition, we will be exploring the use and abuse of animals within the current food system.
Lastly, the OKT Food Justice class will begin discussion of how we can collectively practice food justice in West Michigan. We will look at some models from around the world and how OKT is trying to practice food justice right here in West Michigan.
The Food Justice class begins at 10am and is held at the Garfield Park Lodge, located at 334 Burton SE.
