I am organizing a panel for the Society for Applied Anthropology (SfAA) conference in Denver on youth and food justice programs. If you are interested in participating or know someone who would be good to have on the panel, please let me know at the email below.
Here is the session abstract:
Working with Youth to Grow a More Just Food System
Research on food justice and related topics – including food security, access, farmworker rights, health disparities, and sustainable land use – has continued to explore new and innovative ways to empower communities and create a more equitable food system. Youth, particularly teenagers, are an important demographic in the food justice movement; however, the social capital and potential of youth as agents of change are often overlooked. This panel will present research involving youth and food justice and discuss ways of involving youth in research and activism to build a more just food system.
