Food Justice Work At FairShare
Updated: Mar 30, 2021
FairShare is part of a national network of CSA support organizations, called the CSA Innovation Network. Through our participation in this network, we hoped to look more intentionally at the intersection of food sovereignty and food justice with the CSA landscape. In beginning these inquiries, we realized how much work our own organization had to do in order to center food justice and anti-racism work in our programming and organizational culture.
FairShare began a series of regular (every other week) meetings in June 2019, called Just Lunches. The intent behind these meetings was to create a space for staff to develop a shared language and understanding around topics of equity and the food system, while also moving forward concrete aspects of organizational and programmatic change at FairShare.
