16th Annual Chicago Food Justice Summit
Welcome to Radical Re-Imagination.
Join The Chicago Food Policy Action Council (CFPAC) and its summit planning team in celebrating 16 years of leveraging collective power to policy. The summit will equip attendees with meaningful knowledge, relationships, and conversations to envision our food future together. Each day will highlight ways to ground policy in community action and engage participants in radically re-imagining Chicago’s foodscape.
You will be able to connect with food workers, farmers, vendors, and local leaders. Together we will discuss food policy and other critical issues involving climate change, labor, food access and urban farming. We will also dive into food production in Chicago, Cook County, and across the state of Illinois. The Summit will consist of virtual workshops, passionate speakers, a marketplace of resources, and more!
EVOLUTION FROM POLICY TO JUSTICE
CFPAC as an organization advocates for policies that promote food justice and sovereignty. Rather than placing the focus on our methods of getting to a more equitable food system, we feel we should emphasize our desired outcome: food justice and sovereignty for the Chicago region. While changes like this may seem inconsequential, CFPAC believes the intentional language sets the stage for broader conversations to fully address the systemic problems we seek to uproot.
