Food Justice

The Food Justice team provides research, policy, and legal support to our partners on the ground in Mississippi working to ensure all Mississippians have affordable access to nutritious food. Past projects have included policy scans, briefs, and resources on Food is Medicine, farmers markets, and food donation. All of our projects are partner-driven and executed according to partner needs. For the 2023-24 academic year, the team is partnering with the Mississippi Food Policy Council at the Center for Mississippi Food Systems to provide research on food policies in Mississippi and the broader U.S., with a specific focus on sourcing food, funding feeding programs, and engaging rural communities.
