ABOUT THE THEME: FOOD DEMOCRACY
Food Democracy means we have a right and responsibility to participate in decisions that determine the health and resiliency of our local food system. A healthy democracy requires civic engagement, including voting, participation in local policy and community leadership at all levels. A healthy democracy requires diverse leadership and many voices. It is inclusive and prioritizes access and opportunities for historically marginalized communities to be heard.
For Food Day, we cast our ballot for Good Food For All and call on the City of Los Angeles to:
- Prioritize the end of health disparities for low-income communities
- Ensure healthy, high-quality food is affordable and accessible for all Angelenos
- Cultivate a fair food economy where all workers receive fair compensation and treatment, and small business can thrive
- Strengthen biodiversity, climate resiliency and the health of our water, soil and seed through sustainable growing practices
We also call on Good Food stakeholders through our region to cultivate Food Democracy by getting engaged, learning and teaching new skills and shaping the future of the Good Food For All Agenda. Democracy doesn’t just happen on Election Day; it happens every day. How do you participate? How do you express your leadership? How do you want to see policy change? What can you do to make the change?
