Reading Period Service Trip (To The Twin Cities)

What does “Food Justice” mean to you?

The event is a four day service trip over reading period (May 8-11) to the Twin Cities (Minneapolis-St. Paul) exploring the topic of food justice. Food justice is exercising the right to have access to health and culturally appropriate food. This access to healthy food is especially an issue in low income neighborhoods. For example there are areas in cities, even in Appleton, that are considered ‘food deserts’ because there is no access to food other than corner stores with gas station food nearby. The grocery stores are farther away and this distance can be a barrier for people of lower income who can’t afford to travel or don’t have the time to get to a grocery store.
