Food and Justice
Locations: MN, WI, IA
For: Students Ages 15-18
Dates: July 2-27, 2019
Everyone has a relationship to food. This three-week exploration of the Upper Midwest is designed to explore those relationships and connect them to every part of our food system - the growing, the selling, the buying, the cooking, and the sharing. We’ll adventure through the natural beauty of the Midwest, discover the complexities of both small- and large-scale farming, trace commodity chains through different types of grocery stores, learn to cook new varieties of foods, and share meals with diverse community members as they share their personal food stories. Throughout the trip we’ll reflect on our own roles in both local and national food systems and develop a personal vision of food justice.
Academic Courses Include: U.S. History, Science and Health, Change-Making and Leadership, Economics
