The Radical Origins of Free Breakfast and the Food Justice Movement
The food justice movement as we know it today was born of the legacy of organizations like the Black Panther Party, which launched the Free Breakfast Initiative in 1966. On October 29th, Food & Society at the Aspen Institute and Share Our Strength hosted the inaugural session of its Conversations on Food Justice Series with Devita Davison, Executive Director of FoodLab Detroit, and Ericka Huggins, human rights activist, educator, and Black Panther leader, and Dr. Norbert L. W. Wilson, Professor of Food, Economics and Community at Duke Divinity School at Duke University, to explore the origins of the food justice movement, and how it intersects with fostering racial equality.
