SURVEY - Impact of COVID-19 on Hunger Relief Organizations in the US
How does white supremacy culture play out in the food insecurity and food access space in the United States? To become anti-racist, food system actors must understand how white supremacy culture narratives function to center whiteness across the food system, effectively reinforcing systemic racial inequality and by extension disadvantaging BIPOC people. We discuss how whiteness holds white ideals as universal, how whiteness fuels power in decision making, and how whiteness defines foods as either good or bad.
A significant portion of our work focuses on our home state of North Carolina. Our North Carolina podcast series features farmers, researchers, community leaders and visionaries working to shape, protect, and support our food system.
