Farming for Food Justice in St. Louis – Arielle Wright

January 21 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

On January 21 at 10 am, Arielle Wright Ph.D., Education and Community Engagement Coordinator of Urban Harvest STL, will join us to talk about her organization, which is part of the larger movement for food justice in St. Louis. Unequal food access is a pressing concern in St. Louis. At least 18% of the residents of St. Louis are currently food insecure, and this number is expected to increase as a result of the impact of COVID-19 on economic stability. For historic and economic reasons, low food access neighborhoods are predominantly communities of color and mostly consist of low-income, working poor households. Urban Harvest STL was founded with the desire to grow food where people live and to demonstrate that urban farming can improve equitable food access, create stronger communities and grow thriving ecosystems within our neighborhoods. In collaboration with its partners Fit and Food Connection, Urban League of St. Louis, North Newstead Association and Finance Learning Center, Urban Harvest STL operates three roof-top farms and five urban farms that serve its food access program. Co-sponsored by the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC).
