Food Justice

America has one of the most productive food systems in the world. Workers at every level, from farmers to grocers, work extremely hard every day to get food from the field to your plate.

But some parts of this system are still lacking, and present injustices to workers on farms and in restaurants, to child and adult consumers, to the environment, and to farm animals. One especially prevalent area of need deals with hunger and food access. Today it is estimated that almost 14.5 percent of households in the U.S. are food insecure.
