Heritage Harvest Festival: How Does Food Justice Show Up in Your Community?

  • Monticello Charlottesville, VA USA (map)

How Does Food Justice Show Up in Your Community?

It is often said that food is the common denominator that brings people together. Yet we are finding that food can either improve health outcomes or cause health problems, especially in marginalized communities.

How can we work together to fix a food system that is broken? Or is it broken?

Join nationally celebrated food justice icons and growers Karen Washington and Jovan Sage as they share how they connect their communities to fresh, locally grown food. They’ll be joined in conversation by local food activist Richard Morris, who will describe work being done through the Urban Agriculture Collective of Charlottesville to improve food equity and enhance the quality of life in our city. Come learn how food can heal communities and unite us together in a common goal of better health, social justice and well-being!
