More Than Just Food

Garrett M. Broad

University of California Press

This chapter assesses the benefits and challenges of community-based food justice groups engaging in networks that extend beyond their respective localities. The extension process offered opportunities to disseminate lessons to new geographic arenas, to integrate outside knowledge, and to work collaboratively with other social justice groups toward shared goals. However, this process also gives rise to the question: Could a push in an extra-local direction endanger food justice advocates' efforts while focusing at the local level of their own communities? On that note, the chapter presents how the networked organization Rooted in Community (RIC) encouraged youth activists to recognize the systemic and geographically widespread nature of food injustice, while building capacity among the staff of community-based groups to establish collective cultural and institutional resistance.

Keywords:   food justice groups, extension process, food justice advocates, Rooted in Community, youth activists, food injustice
