Across the San Francisco Bay Area of California, the food justice movement is diverse and growing. From student organizing at the University of California Berkeley to People’s Grocery in Oakland to farmland preservation in Marin County, a wide array of communities, thinkers and activists are exploring new horizons in the fight for a more equitable food system. These organizers, farmers and advocates are tackling issues like access to healthy and affordable food; repairing degraded environments and reducing agrochemical use; empowering youth; and dismantling racism in the food system through policy, urban agriculture, education, community organizing and green businesses.
The mission of Food Justice Tours is to bring our movement together by promoting valuable exchanges and knowledge sharing among the organizations and communities that make up the US food justice movement. Food Justice Tours of the San Francisco Bay Area explore the movements and organizations in the community that Food First calls home. On a Bay Area Food Justice Tour you will meet with the dedicated individuals and communities who are planting the seeds for sustainable change and alternative food systems, while experiencing one the most beautiful and diverse regions of California.
