Food Justice: Upcoming Author Event and Discussion

Join us for next week for a discussion and author event at Bread for the City’s Northwest Center on the topic of Food Justice - featuring Food Justice co-author Robert Gottlieb, local food justice advocate Louise Thundercloud, and many others involved in food, nutrition, and justice in the District.

Wednesday, April 6th 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Bread for the City 1525 7th Street Northwest

We’ll be talking a bit about issues and inequities in today's food system – from the farm workers’ hazardous conditions, to the fact that low-income neighborhoods lack supermarkets, to the emphasis on convenience rather than quality and nutrition in food marketing today. Robert Gottlieb will share perspectives on a nation-wide movement that seeks to transform this food system into one that is more just. Then we’ll look more locally – what does food justice mean for D.C. residents? What opportunities and challenges exist in our city? How does Bread for the City’s programs and our rooftop garden fit into all this? What can you do to help?

Join us! Event is free but space is limited. Please RSVP to This event is co-hosted by D.C. Farm to School Network, Slow Food D.C., Centro Ashé, and the National Family Farm Coalition.
