Food Equity in the Triad

We’re hosting a series of webinars with one of our favorite clients, the Piedmont Triad Regional Food Council.

We’re using this as an opportunity to test different remote engagement strategies, since our planned outreach in this 12-county region was interrupted by COVID-19 – and we’re also really focused on racial equity in the food system through this assessment, so it was a great time to host a meeting on urban farming.

The discussion was intense, uncomfortable, and sometimes vulnerable – and all painfully honest. We really hope you’ll take the time to listen to these three food champions and hear about the very real struggles faced by people of color, by women, by people for whom English is not a first language – and to hear how their voices, although often amplified in these discussions, often don’t result in direct power or change in the communities they live and work in.
