Sunday Platform - Karen Washington: Is The Food System Really Broken?"
Sunday, February 10, 2019 - 11:00am
Ceremonial Hall - 4th floor

Some say the food system is broken and needs to be fixed. I beg to differ; believing it is doing exactly what it’s supposed to do, exploiting cheap labor and dumping cheap food in impoverished neighborhoods. How else can you explain poverty and hunger in the richest nation in the world? Let’s peel back the true meaning of food justice as people fight for a food system that is equitable and just.

Karen Washington is a farmer and activist. She is Co-owner/Farmer at Rise & Root Farm in Chester New York. An activist, food advocate; in 2010, Co- Founded Black Urban Growers (BUGS) an organization supporting growers in both urban and rural settings. In 2012, Ebony magazine voted her one of their 100 most influential African Americans in the country and in 2014 was the recipient of the James Beard Leadership Award. Karen serves on the boards of the New York Botanical Gardens, Why Hunger, Just Food and Farm School NYC.

Presider: Steve Serling

This week’s shared charity is Black Urban Growers (BUGS), which is committed to building networks and community support for growers in urban and rural settings. Through education and advocacy around food and farm issues, BUGS nurtures Black leadership to address these questions: “Why don’t we see more Black farmers at the farmers’ markets?” and “What is the relationship between our individual health and the health of our communities?” Their national Black Farmers & Urban Gardeners Conference brings together Black farmers, food justice advocates, educators, chefs, and concerned members of Black communities from across the country to share best practices and build a stronger network of Black leadership in the movement for food justice and food sovereignty.
