In today’s food system, farm workers face difficult and hazardous conditions, low-income neighborhoods lack supermarkets but abound in fast-food restaurants and liquor stores, food products emphasize convenience rather than wholesomeness, and the international reach of American fast-food franchises has been a major contributor to an epidemic of “globesity.” To combat these inequities and excesses, a movement for food justice has emerged in recent years seeking to transform the food system from seed to table. In Food Justice, Robert Gottlieb and Anupama Joshi tell the story of this emerging movement.

What does food justice mean for D.C. residents? What opportunities and challenges exist in our city? Bread for the City, D.C. Farm to School Network, Slow Food D.C., and Centro Ashé are hosting Robert Gottlieb, Louise Thundercloud, and others involved in food justice advocacy in D.C., for this discussion. Join Bread for the City for a tour of its rooftop garden at 6. Discussion begins at 6:30.

The event is free, but space is limited. Please RSVP to aburket_at_breadforthecity.org (Replace _at_ with @) or call (202) 386-7006.
