Food is a right.

Being a food justice organization means that we are aligning and evaluating our work to ensure that it drives at dismantling sites of exploitation within the food system and our food movement. We use an equity lens to seek justice, and food security, for everyone.

Learn about our work

Whether it is supporting urban farms, subsidizing local produce markets or coordinating community kitchens, all of our work is about folks accessing food on their own terms.

This conversation between Dignity and Joy’s host Sheldomar Elliott and guest Vivien Sansour, founder of the Palestine Heirloom Seed Library, will break listeners’ hearts and put them back together again. Vivien generously takes the time to share the lessons she has learned through her fight to retain and sustain culturally significant food relics.

Body Liberation and Fat Acceptance Statement

As a food justice organization that believes in body liberation and fat acceptance, we do not support fatphobia. We are challenging the idea that foods are “good” or “bad,” or that people are good or bad for eating certain foods.  All bodies have the right to exist as they are.
