Introduction to Food Justice and Ethics:
Sunday May 7 from 2:00- 3:30 p.m.
‘Food justice,’ ‘sustainability,’ and ‘fair trade’ food have all become buzzwords, especially here in Burlington. But what does these concepts mean to us as Jews, and how has our tradition wrestled with what a just food system looks like over thousands of years? These questions of how we should grow food and feed ourselves and our communities are not new. In this class, we will explore text to better understand a Jewish perspective on what just food looks like, both in terms of social and environmental justice. We will read text, wrestle with it, and begin to think about what food ethics we want to live by as Jews today. We’ll also share some tasty local treats!
