Food Justice

Refugee youth from Crawford High School recently completed a three-month, arts-based workshop on food justice that was run by The AjA Project as part of the media collaborative, Speak City Heights. During the final month of programming, students continued to look critically at the issue of food access by photographing, and comparing and contrasting the farmers market in City Heights with the one in Little Italy. They also interviewed parents and elders to get an inter-generational perspective on food security. Finally, they examined photographs in the media related to the famine in Africa and discussed what happens to a society when too many people are hungry.
