The industrial food system has created a crisis in the USA that may be characterized by abundant food for privileged citizens and “food deserts” for the historically marginalized. In response, food justice activists primarily based in low-source of revenue communities of color have developed community-primarily based solutions, arguing that activities like urban agriculture, nutrition education, and food-related social enterprises can drive systemic social change. That specialize in the work of a number of food justice groups—including Community Services and products Unlimited, a South Los Angeles organization founded as the nonprofit arm of the Southern California Black Panther Birthday celebration—More Than Just Food explores the chances and limitations of the community-primarily based approach, offering a networked examination of the food justice movement within the age of the nonprofit industrial complex.
