Food and Environmental Justice week (April 15-18) will feature a series of films, speakers, a food drive and a sustainable foods fair to connect the CU community with food and environmental justice initiatives at the local, national and international levels. Come and participate in the food drive, fair and events to learn how to get more involved in environmental justice issues on and around campus.
The mission of Food and Environmental Justice Week is to promote education and involvement of the disproportionate distribution of environmental burdens and environmental benefits based on race, socio-economic status, gender and ethnicity. In keeping with the principles of environmental justice, the food justice movement aims to change the contemporary food system so the benefits and risks of where, what and how food is grown, produced, distributed, eaten and disposed of are shared fairly. The goal is a food system in which all activities, from farm to table, are equitable, nutritious, educational, culturally appropriate and community-driven.
