Racial Equity and Food Justice: A People of Color Allyship Circle

Event Details/Description: Part of the Berkeley Student Food Collective's goals for the next five years are to actively shift towards a more inclusive, equitable space - evaluating and acting on our role in reducing inequity, oppression and barriers to food access. A space for people of color was recently held to explore how the store can better serve communities of color, and we will be discussing how non-POC members can serve as better allies in this space.

To prepare for our discussion on the intersection of race and food, please read the following:
