This participatory presentation also demonstrates how students of food justice can move from words to the world, engaging service-learning projects with community partners to address food inequities and environmental degradation sometimes concealed by mainstream discourse. Ultimately, these examples show how honest and fearless food stories can help create more ethical eaters. Campus Center Office of the Provost Katie Gantz America/New_York public
