By Ora Kemp, MPH, Director of Nutrition, NY Common Pantry.

Sowed from seeds of fertile grounds, sweat-drenched brows, and broken backs, the flavors of the American plate are seasoned with enslavement's bitterness. Salted with segregation and smoked in stacks of racial injustice, the hunger pangs that linger in the gut of Black and Brown folks has fully grown into an insatiable desire for change. The future of food equity will not be one carved by the unsavory nature of our past but inspired by the diversity of our people and the places and spaces that shape and nurture us. Join us as we explore the American plate and the flavors that define the future of food equity.
