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 on the 3rd Tuesday of the month, 6:30 - 8:30pm Pacific Time on Zoom. Contact [email protected] for more info.
New to the Food Justice Project?
Volunteer orientations are held from 6pm-6:30pm on the 3rd Tuesday of each month, right before Food Justice Project (FJP) meetings. Come to learn more about the Food Justice Project, our current campaigns, and ways you can get involved. The 6:30pm FJP meeting directly after gives you an opportunity to meet current organizers and get involved straight away!
Please RSVP to a future orientation by emailing us first at [email protected].
What We Do
Educate for Action
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!
Subscribe to our FJP listserv (in box below) and get meeting & event announcements, and a few food justice resources/articles from around the region and around the world (1-2 posts a week)!
