Food Justice: A New Social Movement Takes Root

THE NEW SCHOOL | http://www.newschool.edu

In today's food system, farm workers face hazardous conditions, low-income neighborhoods lack supermarkets but abound in fast food franchises, and food products are developed to be convenient rather than wholesome. Opposing these inequities and excesses, a movement for food justice has emerged, which seeks to transform our food system from field to table. 

FOOD STUDIES | http://www.newschool.edu/foodstudies

Professor Robert Gottlieb, director of the Urban and Environmental Policy Institute at Occidental College, discusses the increasing disconnect between food and and the rising resistance movement. He is the author of a dozen books, including most recently Food Justice (with Anupama Joshi, MIT Press) and a long-time social/environmental activist and historian of social movements.
