DLA: Food Apartheid: Hunger and Food Insecurity Affects All of Us
“Not having enough food to eat and the inability to eat healthy food is about more than food deserts, is about racial equity, food justice, and systemic change.”

Did you know that in the City of Phoenix, 42.5% of people live in a food desert? This means that nearly half of all the people living in Phoenix in these 43 food desert areas do not have access to healthy food due to lack of healthy food outlets, lack of reliable transportation, income, and time. The Coronavirus pandemic exacerbated the reality for those already suffering and many experienced uncertainty about where their next meal was coming from for the first time.

In this eye-opening webinar, you will hear from advocates working in government, education, grassroots organizations, restaurants, and food producers about the state of the local food system, the effects of the pandemic and how collaboration among unlikely partners is making progress towards a more sustainable, equitable, and resilient food system. You will also learn actions you can take to promote food equity in your own community.
