What is Food Justice Fortnight?
Food Justice Fortnight is an opportunity to celebrate the wonderful and diverse food communities creating positive change within our city.
Between June 26th and July 9th, Food Justice events will be taking place all over Bristol. There’ll be discussions, activities and many shared meals. Information about all events will be announced on Feeding Bristol’s Twitter and Facebook accounts.
Why do we need Food Justice?
Food is essential to good health, wellbeing and a thriving society; food is often the glue that holds communities together. Recent years have seen an increase in the number of people who are unable to eat well according to their health and culture – this is Food Inequality, and it is a huge injustice.
Bringing people together over food helps build our resilience, but we need to do more if we want to address the injustice of food inequality in the city. For this reason, we’ve created the One City Food Equality Action Plan and are launching it during Food Justice Fortnight. The Action Plan, which was co-produced by citizens and stakeholders of Bristol, sets out what we need to do over the next three years to start laying the groundwork for food equality in the city.
By connecting over food and collaborating to create community-based solutions, we are participating in Food Justice.
