What we do

Educate for Action2014-06-28 11.09.56

Community-based workshops and "teach-outs" educating people on food justice & sovereignty issues and encouraging people to take action.

"Our Food, Our Right: Recipes for Food Justice" is CAGJ's educational book in two editions, with recipes, how-to, and essays on food politics, justice, and sovereignty. A great teaching resource!
