University of Michigan Residential College
Keene Theater, 701 E. University
Ann Arbor, MI 48109 United States

October 18 @ 8:00 am - 5:30 pm

Cost: Free

The ways that we meet the nutritional needs of all our communities, while also protecting the planet, promoting healthy lives, and ensuring food justice, are among the greatest challenges facing our nation and the world today. How to address these challenges and feed a hungry population raise transformative issues for communities and academics committed to sustainability and food justice throughout the world.

The Community of Food, Society & Justice Conference will engage students, faculty, staff, farmers, and the community in rigorous dialogue around these challenges. The conference will be structured around a foundation of interdisciplinary scholarship that agrees that recognizing structural relations of power are necessary in order to confront race, class, and gender privileges on these issues and others.

Buffet lunch prepared by University of Michigan Sustainable Food Program with food grown by the University of Michigan Campus Farm
