[100% Unique Papers] Complex Ways Even Around
Food politics and social justice issues around the topic of food are more visible today than they have ever been. Food, diet, health, community planning, political values, social identity, are wound up in complex ways even around seemingly simple issues. For example, in Chicago the issue of “food deserts” or unequal food access and availability has spurred many NGOs as well as City government to consider new ways to reduce inequalities. This can be observed in things like urban gardens, food pantries, city ordinances, and local political debates.
