Module 7: Food Justice

This module emphasizes the importance of food justice and good food in schools.  According to the non-profit Just Foods, Food Justice is communities exercising their right to grow, sell, and eat healthy food. Healthy food is fresh, nutritious, affordable, culturally-appropriate, and grown locally with care for the well-being of the land, workers, and animals.  People practicing food justice leads to a strong local food system, self-reliant communities, and a healthy environment.  Schools and stores within the community should provide safe, fresh, and nutritious meals that are 1) prepared in quality environments 2) are supported by kids and parents and 3) contribute to the reduction of childhood obesity, as well as instill healthy eating behaviors at an early age.  After this module, participants will understand where healthy food options exist in their community and how to approach schools to provide healthier food options.
