Millennium Fellowship Project: Food Injustice: A Global Crisis During the COVID-19 Pandemic
The Food Injustice project will examine the relationship between food injustice and the COVID-19 pandemic, considering factors such as not having enough employees to work which reduces the amount of food being produced; issues producing and trading food resources while mitigating risk of disease; and problems with access to healthy, nutritious food in certain communities of color, poverty, mental health etc. This project will not only examine the root causes and the outcomes but also analyze different ways to resolve the issues including providing education, resources, to even petitioning to fight for a change within the food system.
