Food Justice and Participatory Structures

Food Rescue Alliance is a network of food justice organizations in different cities working to redistribute healthy food to communities with less access to healthy food. Each individual food rescue organization is working with grocery stores to donate food and redistribute it to recipients, most of which is done by bicycle. Denver and Boulder Food Rescue are two of these organizations, both of which are doing similar work, but have different models and ideas because they respond differently to the unique communities with which they partner.

We will learn approaches to building relationships and developing participatory design structures with communities to address gaps in the food system. Presented by Hana Dansky, Brittini Hernandez and Helen Katich of Boulder Food Rescue.
