Uprooting the Structural Drivers of Health Inequity: Policy Solutions for a Values-Based Food System
POLICY SOLUTIONS FOR A VALUES-BASED FOOD SYSTEM is the fifth episode in ChangeLab Solutions’ six-part virtual discussion series, Uprooting the Structural Drivers of Health Inequity. In this 75-minute episode, our panel of experts will explore how the intersectionality of food systems affects community health.

In the past year, COVID-19 has pushed food insecurity rates in the United States to unprecedented levels, particularly among BIPOC households. To move from food access toward food justice, we need a collaborative effort among community organizations, food policy councils, anchor institutions, and local government to acknowledge structural racism in the food system and commit to transformative change.

The goal of this webinar is to equip participants with action steps to operationalize the values of racial equity and a valued workforce in food system policy. Our panelists will discuss policy and policy process innovations that support a values-based and people-centered food system.
