CHARACTERS Cultivating Food Justice
Teness of Alternative Food Julie Guthman exposes the whiteness implicit the tendency for both students implicit in the tendency for both students scholars to insist that if people only where their food came from a sustainable and just way of relating to eating would emerge Guthman argues that such a discourse constructs the spaces of alternative food as white and that the refusal to acknowledge that farmers markets and CSA are predominantly constructed as white universalism contributes to the very whiteness of the demographics they serve Guthman s article echoes the work of A Breeze Harper in Vegans of Color Racialized Embodiment and the Problematics of the Exotic Harper exposes the way racial privilege manifests itself in animal rights circles particularly in the labeling of certain dishes as exotic or foreign Harper s work emphasizes the experiences of vegans of colors and the very real implications of the construction of this white space for the out of placeness that vegans of color can experience in white food spaces To what extent is the failure of alternative food to reach people of color and economically marginalized communities a function not only of colorblindness but also due to the capitalist logic structuring alternative food access Jesse C McEntree s Rural Food Justice Divergent Locals in the Northeastern United States addresses this issue by distinguishing between contemporary localism in which well intentioned privileged consumers pay a premium to support local farms and traditional localism in which marginalized members of a community raise food animals or grow their own food to increase affordable access to food for themselves and their families Contemporary localism makes sense from a particular capitalist epistemology which traditional localism subverts The penultimate essay of the volume by E Melanie DuPuis Jill Lindsey Harrison and David Goodman examines what food justice scholars and activists mean when they employ the word justice If we want to really work on the connections between sustainable foods and social justice we would benefit they argue from an interrogation of the relationship between theories of social justice and the articulation of food justice in both academic and social movement contexts The essay would ave been stronger if it explicitly engaged with the relationship between the food justice movement and the environmental justice movement This article works not to celebrate or denounce local food but to ask us to engage reflexively in local food movements claims to enact justice It ends with a call to embrace imperfect politics The concluding essay demanded a global frame discussing food riots and engaging the uestion of a global food crisis In many ways I felt the essay captured some of the major themes of Stuffed and Starved in a shorter format It would pair well with work by Vandana Shiva and statements by Occupy Big Food The challenge it lays out is indeed the challenge before us to address the immediate problems of unger malnutrition food insecurity and environmental degradation while working steadily toward the structural changes needed for a sustainable and euitable food system 325 Loooooooooooooooooooooove this Highly recommend this book if you re looking for a background in changing the current climate of race and agriculture Worthwhile as a collection that critiues and
