Three Food and Justice team members from the 2013 program.

Building on the success of the 2011 – 2013 New Orleans programs the Centre for Community-Engaged Learning offered two New Orleans programs for the 2014 Reading Week. The Food & Justice and Building Healthy Community programs shared some programming as students learn together about the dynamic city of New Orleans.
The Food & Justice program explored food security as students volunteered with local agriculture projects. This experience allowed students to explore the issue of food security and gain appreciations for the social justice issues related to food security such as race, environment, education and poverty. In gaining deeper understanding of these issues students developed an understanding of the long term effects of social injustice in a community, as well as the impacts of environmental disasters like Hurricane Katrina.
