Food Literacy And Justice
Basic food literacy education:
Nourish defines food literacy as “the ability to make informed choices about food that support one’s health, community, and the environment.” At every scale — national, regional, local, school, organization, family— food literacy creates enduring value. Food literacy is an entry point and a catalyst for change.
