History, Social Justice, and the Legacy of How Food Connects Us
The food we eat is harvested by the hardworking hands of essential farm workers. Through harshweather conditions and during precarious global circumstances, such as the current Covid-19 pandemic, they continue their laborious work. Historically, farmworkers have always been at theforefront of, not only harvesting the foods we eat, but also spearheading social justice movements for labor rights.
In March 2021, we held a week-long series of workshops for educators, families, and K-12 students. Through cooking demonstrations, historical lectures and more, participants learned how the food on our table connects to history, social justice, and to our own family history.
