FOOD FOR THE REST OF US

Recent social movement campaigns such as #BlackLivesMatter, #IdleNoMore, and #TimesUp are often notable for focusing on systemic violence towards their respective communities. These campaigns have also inspired other ways to close the gaps for disenfranchised communities in the long term, focusing on the food supply chain: generate more access to quality food and greater ownership over farmable land. Some of these methods are truly creative and brilliant, providing hope for the future of eliminating unnecessary hunger, poverty, and illness.

FOOD FOR THE REST OF US focuses on four examples in particular: an Indigenous-owned, youth run organic farm in Hawai‘i, a Black urban grower in Kansas City who runs a high school land-farm, a female Kosher butcher working with the queer Colorado community, and an Inuit community on the Arctic Coast operating out of a small, climate-friendly geodesic dome. Each of these subjects are examples of true leadership within the community, fighting for the underprivileged to shape their destiny on their own terms.
