In reading and reading and reading for my research this semester (and in a few courses), I wanted to share a few incredible books shedding lights on the injustices tucked away within our food system. Also, some people have been asking me for places to start... these books are a beginniing into food justice within the food system.
- The New Food Activism: Opposition, Cooperation, and Collective Action by Alison Hope Alkon and Julie Guthman
- More Than Just Food: Food Justice and Community Change by Garrett Broad (Food Justice in Los Angeles)
- Beyond the Kale: Urban Agriculture and Social Justice Activism in New York City by Kristin Reynolds and Nevin Cohen (Social Justice and Activism in New York)
- Fresh Fruit, Broken Bodie by Seth Holmes (migrant farmworkers in Northwest United States)
