I'd like to invite you to march together on May 1 with what we are calling the Food Chain Block for Food Justice. Farmers, migrant farmworkers, and organized food co-op workers will all be marching together and calling for the State of Vermont to prioritize Food Justice. Members of Rural Vermont, NOFA-VT, Migrant Justice, and UE members from food co-ops will all be participating.
What is food justice?? Here are some concepts that we are starting to pass around. What do you think? 3 Pillars of Food Justice
(or alternatively 3 Pillars of Food System Justice):
1) Economic Justice from farm to table
2) Healthy Food For All
3) Resilient/Sustainable Community-Based Food Systems
If you can come, let me know! Make some food justice signs or banners that communicate what your passions are! Farmers, we're trying to round up some wheel hoes to push in the march, so please bring along any lightweight wheeled tools. Feel free to bring other props from your farm to spice up the march.
Here's a link to details about the day:
Lastly, please forward this to other food producers, food justice advocates and allies, and food distributers in your networks.
Thanks, and I'd love to see you next Tuesday,
