Food Justice: In The Community 

This curriculum was designed to empower and enlighten people about Food Justice. Food Justice efforts are a rallying cry from the people directly affected by inequitable food policies and practices. Our team designed this curriculum with NYC high schoolers in mind, although it can be adapted for all ages and places.

It's the people on the ground who are creating better communities for themselves. They are organizing, campaigning, marching, participating, and influencing government policies, all while educating themselves and others. 

Special thanks to all the amazing partners that lent their ears, hearts, and minds to this curriculum: CUNY Urban Food Policy, Red Hook Farms, and Brotherhood-Sistersol

We invite you to click each lesson below which will take you to an interactive Google Slide presentation. Each lesson introduces a different aspect of Food Justice, with key vocabulary, videos, discussion questions and a post-activity.
