Creating a Healthy, Equitable, and Just Regional Food System
On Friday, March 6th Santa Clara University along with the Santa Clara Food System Alliance hosted a South Bay Food Justice Workshop. The agenda included a presentation by a local Latinx female farmer, a panel discussion of how various groups have fostered collaboration around food justice, breakout sessions on various aspects of food justice, and a presentation on agroecology. This convening brought together a wide range of stakeholders that are working to address issues related to food security with a focus of building a regional coalition. The outcomes from this event will inform the planning of next steps for the San Mateo Food System Alliance’s June Food Justice convening. It will require a regional, collaborative effort to address food justice locally.
