“Food Apartheid in Louisville Exposes Hunger Capitalism”

with Andrew Kang Bartlett

Is food a God-given right or simply another commodity from which to profit? Louisville has a tiered food structure that reveals the racist and exploitative nature of our local food system. We will look at this injustice and explore ways of addressing Louisville’s food apartheid using home-grown models and experiences from around the country.  Andrew Kang Bartlett works with the Presbyterian Church (USA) Hunger Program and volunteers locally with the Food in Neighborhoods (FIN) Community Coalition and nationally with the US Food Sovereignty Alliance.
