Food Justice Project
Through community education, political action, anti-oppressive organizing and community-building, the Food Justice Project seeks to challenge and transform the globalized, industrial, corporate-driven food system and promote existing alternatives.
Food Justice Project meetings are 3rd Tuesday of the month, 6:30 - 8:30pm at CAGJ's Office, 606 Maynard Ave S #102, Seattle, WA. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.

What we do
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!
Mobilizing our members and the public for a fair food system.
Take action to support these campaigns and food sovereignty everywhere!
We organize and support campaigns in solidarity with local family farmers and food producers, farmworkers, for the right to good food, food chain workers, and food justice globally!
