Food and Gentrification Workshop

Featured Panel: Food & Gentrification in the South Bronx

What is the relationship between food and gentrification?

How does gentrification impact our relationship with and access to food in our communities? How do rising property values, policy, and people in power alter our foodscapes? What is our work in the face of these changes?

Join us for a conversation with urban farmer and food justice activist, Karen Washington, community organizer with Take Back the Bronx, Sidney Negron, founder of Green Worker Cooperatives, Omar Freilla, and co-founder of Woke Foods, Ysanet Batista. Moderated by Woke Foods & Land Education Coordinator, Frances Perez-Rodriguez.

Hosted by Woke Foods Food and Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute
