FOOD JUSTICE IS RACIAL JUSTICE  

   FROM THE BLAK CHURCH FOOD SECURITY NETWORK   

  "As long as the African American community is totally dependent on

   the corporate food system that's propped up by legacies of slavery

   and exploitation, we'll never be fully free.

 

   As demonstrations happen around the country with cries of "Black

   Lives Matter," in the air and painted on city blocks, we must 

   remember too that to be free means having the ability to feed

   yourself and your loved ones on your own terms. In the words of

   Fannie Lou Hamer, "Food is used as a political weapon, but if you

   have a pig in your backyard and some vegetables in your garden, you

   can feed yourself and your family and nobody can push you around."
 

   We can weaken the system of racism and White Supremacy by not 

   ordering from its menu!"
