For decades, alternative food movements promoting local markets and sustainable production methods have sought to expand their reach in the face of growing social inequities and a changing climate. But lower prices and abundant supply offered by the global food system were serious headwinds. Now that the pandemic has shown just how fragile that system is, it’s time to seize the moment to build real change that prioritizes diversity and resilience. In this class we will discuss the current state of our global food system and the need to reform it in light of its environmental and social impacts.
