There’s no single definition of “food insecurity,” but we asked people working in food justice to help us understand what it means, including a lack of access to healthy foods, a lack of choice, and families not knowing where their next meal will come from. Race and geography can both contribute to a family’s ability to access to healthy foods.
Are farmers paid fairly? Does race play a role in food insecurity? Is our food system broken?
“At The Table” is a Twin Cities PBS Original series, in partnership with the Cargill Foundation, that addresses the social and systemic issues within our food environment.
