JUST FOOD'S WORK
Just Food sparks community members into action on the individual, community, and systemic level through our dynamic learner-centered trainings, community-led direct to farm access models, grassroots advocacy efforts, and successful convenings.
Just Food trainings are based on Popular Education that emphasizes lifting up the expertise of individuals in their communities who would not otherwise be recognized as experts.
Just Food sets the table for our most impacted community partners to be elevated, heard, and recognized as the leaders on the forefront of the food justice movement. Our ongoing workshops and annual conference promote and emphasize shared learning, renew commitment to action, and forging new relationships.
We connect NYC community members through direct linkages to sustainable small to mid scale regional farmers. We strive to amplify racial and economic equity for a more just food system.
Just Food’s unique role is to amplify the stories and voices from our community partners on the grassroots level and leverage our collective power to inform and influence elected officials, government agencies, and policy makers.
