Supporting Food Security: The Food Justice Initiative
The Food Justice movement has become increasingly important as food security and well-being has gained national and policy attention. Studies indicate that low income, rural, and urban areas experience higher rates of obesity and diet related illnesses due to the lack of access to affordable and nutritious foods. Active Voice’s Take Your Place and Food, Inc. campaigns looked to sustain community involvement around food security and support local initiatives to combat child obesity, while with King Corn, we looked at how consumers consider the present state and future options of the nation’s food and agricultural systems.
