food sovereignty/justice media

Are you interested in learning more about food justice and sovereignty?? What a coincidence! So am I! Because we don’t get a lot of examples of food justice movements in history classes, it’s a lot harder for me to imagine what an effective and systemic food justice movement would even look like than it is for me to imagine what a social justice movement more focused on legal equality looks like. That, I think, we can all at least kind of imagine, as hard as it is to enact. But food justice? What does it look like? Why do we need it? And what does being an accomplice to food justice movements entail? I don’t know, obviously, but below are some articles (and a couple of podcasts and videos) that have helped me mull those questions over in a thoughtful and more educated way. Enjoy!
