Cultivating Food Justice, Seeding Sovereignty: A Primer to Reap an Equitable, Inclusive, and Sustainable Food System

Breakout Session (Running Concurrently)

Bringing back last year’s Fishbowl format, this interactive session will allow attendees to examine and discuss the intersection of Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) and the food waste sector — providing insights into what work is currently happening, who is involved, where there are gaps, where there are opportunities, and where there are potential inadvertent consequences. You wil get the opportunity to exchange meaningful knowledge, build deep relationships, and make powerful conversations on how to envision our food future together.
