Food justice is broadly conceptualized as the provision of equitable access to healthy and nutritious food to our cities, neighborhoods, and communities. This course explores some of the ways that faith and passion for the Divine can inform and inspire the drive towards delivering food justice. The course is also intended as a challenge for students to reflect on individual faith perspectives as they pertain to specific practices in delivering food justice from a micro community-organizational level to macro policies in ensuring food security and justice.
