Thursday, May 25, 2017: Join the Los Angeles Food Policy Council and The California Endowment for a panel discussion on The Fight for Fair Food.
How food comes to us is often fraught with troubling injustices, ranging from unsafe conditions facing food workers, to broken immigration policies impacting our food system, to unequal access to healthy foods determined by which neighborhood one resides.
As we build a world-renown culinary culture in Los Angeles, how do we ensure that all Angelenos benefit?
- Restaurant workers and chefs are joining forces to create leadership opportunities for people with barriers to employment, including immigrants and people transitioning from homelessness or incarceration.
- Others are expanding access to healthy food in low-income neighborhoods by supporting entrepreneurs in the informal economy, such as street vendors.
Combined, these efforts to support innovation and build power in communities provide promising models of how we as Angelenos can change the odds so that health happens in neighborhoods and ultimately create a fair food system for all.
