Just Food: Race, Equity, & Food Systems


A truly sustainable food system is racially equitable, farm to fork. Structural racism impacts our current food system in many ways, profoundly affecting land ownership, distribution, and access and affordability. In order to (re)develop our food system to be racially just, it is important to confront racialized inequality head on. 



Just Food is a year-long series of programs, hosted on the University of Kentucky campus, designed to foster conversation about race, justice, and our food system. Our hope is to bring UKY students, faculty, and staff together with nationally-renowned scholars, local activists, and Lexington community members for productive conversation about how race, food, and inequality intertwine.
