Food Justice Definition

Just like everyone else, I was wondering what the definition of food justice. So I went to google and typed in: what is food justice?. The first site that came up was the Canadian Foodgrains Bank website. Here it says that "Food justice would exist if everyone had sufficient food." Food justice itself is defined as "society should arrange its relationships so everyone can have sufficient food." As we all know, that is not the case. It all depends on where you live, your background, demographics, etc. It's obvious even in the news, that not everyone has the same access to the same resources and opportunities. Which is quite unfortunate, and therefore causes many unjustices in the world, and food injustice is one of them.

Now that I have a firm knowledge of what food justice actually is/means, I think I will be more aware of it so I will notice instances or cases of this in the news, or anywhere else I am.
