We’re part of a larger conversation happening in many grassroots and other groups across the region and the country grappling with economic justice, food access, systemic racism and other interconnected issues. We hope to bridge the gaps created by a food system where most of the profit flows toward the largest companies while farmers struggle to recoup their own costs and far too many eaters are unable to access food reliably, especially fresh and healthy food.
We’ll add more materials here as this website becomes more fully functional. In the meantime, here are just a few of the sources and resources we’ve found helpful in learning and thinking about the challenges of moving toward a truly fair food system:
- Civil Eats (including this May 2021 op ed co-authored by our federal representative James McGovern, stating that “hunger is not inevitable—it’s a policy choice”)
- The Counter
- “Agriculture: The Next Battleground for Climate Justice” from FoodFirst
- The People’s Agroecology Process from WhyHunger
- New England Food Vision from Food Solutions New England
- publications from Soul Fire Farm in Grafton, NY
