The sustainable food movement is teeming with buzzwords: “farm to table,” “locavore,” even “sustainable” itself. Despite their relative youth, they’ve already become cliché.
That’s why listening to Louise Thundercloud, an advocate for low-income people in Washington, DC, is so refreshing. “If I go up to somebody hanging out on 7th Street and say, ‘Here’s some sustainable food for you,’ they’re gonna look at me like I’m crazy,” she says.
Thunderbird shared her insights on how to talk about food, nutrition, and cooking with people in low-income communities at a conversation on food justice hosted by Bread for the City on April 6th. Learn what she had to say over on the FRESH blog.
