More Than a Solution for Surplus Food: An Interactive Deep-Dive on Designing for Equity, Justice, and Access in Food Systems
Our food systems are rooted in historical inequities that are still rampant today. We have an opportunity to rebuild them differently, but how can we design with those who are impacted, not for? While the primary conversation around food waste and Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice (DEIJ) has been addressing food insecurity with surplus food, there are many other intersections that go beyond using some of our most disempowered members of society as a home for surplus food — food that is great for everyone no matter their socio-demographic. Participate in this interactive discussion, led by ReFED team members, as they share insights from their research on the intersections of DEIJ and the food waste ecosystem. Ultimately, we aim to together cultivate sustainable resilient systems that nourish, rather than deprive.
