This course will explore the important relationship between food, public health, and social justice. We will examine the historical, cultural, economic, and political factors that have contributed to disparities in food access, and thus disparities in health.Lack of healthy food access is a social determinant of health, negatively impacting low-income, underserved, and minority populations. Asking the "where, what, and how" we eat will guide a discussion of health equity and health policy.
