Food justice is theme of HNU workshop

"Food justice" is the theme of the fifth annual Social Justice Forum hosted by Holy Names University. Bryant Terry, who is a chef, educator, author and activist, will be the keynote speaker at the Feb. 21 forum, which will be held in the Valley Center for the Performing Arts on the Mountain Boulevard campus in Oakland.

In addition to Terry, who is known for his activism to create a healthy, just and sustainable food system, the conference will include workshops covering topics such as food access and scarcity, sustainability, how food injustice impacts marginalized communities, and community organizing.

Cost of attendance varies from free for high school students to $30 general admission. Box lunches are available for an additional $10.

For information and registration, contact the university's Center for Social Justice & Civic Engagement at centerforsocialjustice@hnu.edu or 510-436-1283.
