Food apartheid is the result of structural racism in the food system.

We will explore racial disparities in historical US structures of food production and access which have led to high rates of food insecurity and lack of healthy food access for Black and Brown communities in comparison with their white counterparts.

This workshop will explore food apartheid and how youths can advocate for changes to the food system.
