Food For Life, A Human Right?

Please join the Inner-Ciy Muslim Action Network (IMAN), the Department of Kinesiology & Nurition, and the Chicago Partnership for Health Promotion (CPHP) at the University of Illinois at Chicago for our annual Food For Life Forum. 

The Food for Life Forum brings together key stakeholders from across the city to address food and racial justice as they intersect at the corner store. We will review the current context around healthy food access and the racial dynamics in the inner-city, analyze various barriers and challenges to solving these issues, hear about some of the work being done at the grass roots level to address the issues, and will work towards developing a city wide model of intervention.

Time: 10:00am-1:00pm (doors open at 9:30am)
