Conversations on Food Justice: Farmers Markets and Healthy Food Access

July 29, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

This second conversation of our Food Justice series will highlight April Jones who started a farmers market in her community after all the large scale groceries stores closed, effectively making it a food apartheid neighborhood. April will guide us through her journey sharing practical tips for those interested in starting a farmers market in their community!

Inequities in our food system continue to disproportionately burden communities of color. Dismantling these inequities is imperative to achieve a sustainable food system and ultimately food justice. April Jones from Pinehurst Community Action and Farmers Market and Phoebe Gooding from Toxic Free North Carolina will co-facilitate in depth discussions with a variety of presenters on the following topics:

  • Indigenous seed keeping and food sovereignty
  • Healthy food access through farmers’ markets
  • Overcoming barriers to land access
  • Self determination and resilient communities
  • Agricultural labor and farmworkers

The series is from June to October on the last Thursday of each month from 4-5pm EST. Join us for one or all! Email phoebe@toxicfreenc.org with questions.
