More Than Just Food

Garrett M. Broad

University of California Press

This chapter discusses food justice programs such as building farms and gardens, developing youth education and job training initiatives, as well as creating social enterprises to bring good food into neighborhoods. These initiatives have emerged not only in response to the failures of the contemporary food system but also in response to an inadequate alternative food movement—one that has done an insufficient job of incorporating the needs and knowledge of residents and leaders from low-income neighborhoods and communities of color into its agenda. They also offer a unique and viable entry point to build an effective form of resistance against the said problems.
