This summer, Live Real - a new national initiative working to make REAL FOOD the norm, not the exception! - commemorates the 50th Anniversary of the 1961 Freedom Rides by organizing two Food & Freedom Rides, investigating how people on the frontlines of the industrial food system are surviving its dark side, and thriving in the light of their own alternatives.
Together with Rooted In Community, we are out planting the seeds that will influence change in the upcoming Food and Farm Bill to support real food as a real solution for economic revitalization, personal and public health, and the environment. We represent a rising cross-cultural generation that's had enough of agribusiness-as-usual, and call on our representatives to take a stand for real food. Through these rides, video documentation, and our calls to action, we are lifting the veil on these untold stories, working to build community and public awareness, and demanding a shift in policy towards a food system that works for everyone.
We will be coming together to celebrate vibrant and healthy alternatives as young advocates for real food share stories from their journey and connect those lessons to the legacy of the Civil Rights Movement. By exposing injustice in the food system, we will engage communities, develop curriculum to share with educators, and weave together these stories to find the food movement's own place in history.
