UC Berkeley Foodscape Map Launch

Workshop | April 19 | 3:30-5:30 p.m. | Martin Luther King Jr. Student Union, Stephens Lounge

 Berkeley Food Institute, Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society, Student Environmental Resource Center, ASUC Senator Robinson

Join the “Building Equitable and Inclusive Food Systems at UC Berkeley” team for an unveiling of our interactive, participatory UC Berkeley Foodscape Map. This multi-dimensional map provides a snapshot of all food-related initiatives on campus, including UC Berkeley teaching, student and faculty research, student organizations, administrative decisions and initiatives, and dining services and procurement. The map serves as a central hub for information and, importantly, highlights the structural conditions that enable exclusions based on social markers of identity, including gender, race, and class, in an effort to emphasize opportunities for equity-oriented change and meaningful, diverse engagement.

At this poster session event, you will have a chance to explore various layers of this dynamic map and hear from some of the many students involved in its development. We hope you will join us to learn more about the UC Berkeley food system, celebrate our progress, and add your visions to this collective undertaking.
