BSt 444 Food Justice

Food justice is studied from a holistic perspective, which considers the complexities and intersections of ecological, cultural, nutritional, political and socioeconomic factors in the production and consumption of food. As a Black Studies food justice class, we study the historic background and diversity of Afro descent food ways, and look at contemporary topics of environmental justice, land and food access, cultural identity and appropriation. We also employ pedagogies that engage our understanding of growing food, cooking food, and eating food.
