Just Food? Forum on Labor Across the Food System
A collaboration of the Harvard Food Literacy Project and Harvard Law School Food Law Society. Co-sponsored by the Food Law and Policy Clinic at Harvard Law School
April 1, 2017 8:00am - 5:30pm
Austin Hall, Harvard Law School, Cambridge, Massachusetts
This year’s Just Food? Conference will focus on labor in the food system, exploring the issues most relevant to those who grow, harvest, prepare, and serve our food. Participants will learn from a diverse group of food system workers, advocates, scholars, practitioners and other authorities, who will speak about their work on topics including agricultural worker rights, worker compensation in the restaurant industry, regulatory responses, and alternative ownership and operating models. Through the conference, we hope to shift attention toward a critical, but often overlooked, component of our food system: the workers. By amplifying the voices of those most embedded in our food system, we hope to educate participants, empower them to make positive change, and ultimately, work together to create a more just food system.
Detailed speaker and schedule information will be added as the 2017 conference approaches.
