  • This session will briefly assess and explain how structural racialization and bias has led to food insecurities and a lack of access (exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic), specifically in distressed communities of color (especially among individuals experiencing homelessness), expressed through the speakers own lenses.
  • We'll create awareness around food insecurity and equip the audience with tangible tools to address their own biases and promote access for communities that are food insecure.
  • Panelists will discuss the need to abandon “status quo/business as usual” policies, strategies and practices that perpetuate inequities that lead to and perpetuate food insecurity and limit access.
