Scholars, policy analysts, activists and food providers will examine questions of just and fair food—the availability of fresh, equitably produced, affordable food for all—on a national, regional and local level. A fair-food bazaar will include lunch and conversation with panelists and local fair/just food practitioners.

Paula Daniels, senior advisor to the mayor of Los Angeles on sustainable food and water policy and chair of the Los Angeles Food Policy Council, will moderate a conversation with Oran Hesterman, author of Fair Food: Growing a Healthy, Sustainable Food System for All; Robert Gottlieb, co-author of Food Justice and director of the Urban & Environmental Policy Institute at Occidental College; Luz Calvo, professor of ethnic studies at California State University, East Bay, and founder of Luz’s Decolonial Cooking Club; LaVonna Lewis, a USC public policy professor who teaches on food policy; and Sarah Portnoy, who teaches a course in the Spanish department at USC on culinary culture in Hispanic Los Angeles.
