    Roots of Radical Food Justice: The Black Panther’s “Free Breakfast Program” (Family friendly storytelling)

  • Start Time: 11:00 am

    Ends: 1:00 pm

    Description: Join ANA CECILIA GALVIS MARTINEZ for this wonderful workshop…
    The Food Justice Movement in the Bay Area is diverse, thus is how while some organizations propose restructuring some aspects of the food system, others propose radical changes that recognize that access to healthy and fairly produced food is a right of all human beings regardless their race, gender, age or social class. The first ones to propose radical changes regarding food justice in the Bay Area were members of the Black Panthers Party. Let´s do a reflection in family about the leading role of the people of color in the struggle for the food justice.

    This June 21st, we will read in Spanish and English a children´s book that is a results of a research that sought to show that the Black Panther Party with their survival programs, not only were demanding access to caloric intake but they were demanding for healthy food, food produced by workers who could unionize, food without poisons that harm the health of the Mother Earth or the human body. They were demanding for food Justice!

    El movimiento de Justicia Alimentaria en el área de la Bahía es diverso, es así que mientras algunas organizaciones proponen la reestructuración del sistema alimentario, otras proponen cambios radicales que hagan que el acceso a alimentos sanos y producidos justamente sea un derecho de todos los seres humanos sin importar su raza, género, edad o clase social. Los primeros que propusieron este cambio radical en el Área de la Bahía fueron los miembros de las Panteras Negras. Reflexionemos en familia el papel protagónico que han tenido organizaciones de personas de color en la lucha para lograr la justicia alimentaria radical.

    El 21 de junio de 2014 leeremos en Español y en Inglés un cuento infantil que presenta de manera amigable y de fácil compresión los resultados de una investigación que busca mostrar que el Partido de las Panteras Negras con sus programas de supervivencia, no solo exigían acceso a una ingesta calórica sino que ellos exigían alimentos sanos, producidos por trabajadores que pudieran sindicalizarse, alimentos sin venenos que dañaran la Madre Tierra o el cuerpo humano, ellos exigían Justicia Alimentaria!

    Intro to Cottage Food Laws

    Start Time: 11:00 am

    Ends: 1:00 pm

    Description:
    This workshop will be focused on the steps necessary to become a Cottage Food Operation. I’ll focus on information resources, what the law states, and how to fill out applications. I’ll describe the process I went through from conceiving a business idea to the interview with the health department. It’ll be a break down of how it can work for prospective business owners, who can benefit from the new law, and how to create a CFO.

    What is a Cottage Food Operation?

    The California Homemade Food Act (AB1616) allows individuals to prepare and package certain non-potentially hazardous foods in private-home kitchens referred to as “Cottage Food Operations” (CFOs). Processed meat, dairy, fermented foods, and juices are NOT legally acceptable cottage foods.

    Learn about:

    • Cottage Food Law

    • Food science and sanitation

    • Hands-on demos with jams/jellies, honey, nuts, dried fruit, and/or baked

    goods

    • Packaging and storage

    • Business operations for CFOs

    Why Disability Justice Matters to Food Justice…

    Start Time: 11:00 am

    Ends: 1:00 pm

    Description: Why Disability Justice Matters to Food Justice w/Natasha Simpson

    This workshop is meant to lead the way in thinking about how health is framed within the food justice movement, and how we can begin to think differently about issues of food and health with the help of a disability justice framework. Natasha will discuss the major food justice issues facing people with disabilities, what dis/ableism is and how it plays out, a bit of history about the category of disability and its relation to capitalism, make the distinction between disability rights vs. disability justice, and discuss why there is such difficulty in addressing disability within food justice illustrating some of this with her own identity and experiences. We’ll work collaboratively to think through some of the ways we can have a bit more disability justice with our food justice.

    Beyond spending the last two years studying this topic, Natasha L. Simpson embodies a disability justice politics. Her work focuses on how to rethink health, identity, and disability as a radical statement about loving ourselves wholly rather than reproduce the oppression imposed on our bodies. Her dream in life is to be able to help realize a critical culture change by way of disability justice.
