Race, Place, and Food
Date: 5:00pm PST November 4 Location: South Chapel, Lewis & Clark Graduate Campus
South Chapel, Lewis & Clark Graduate Campus
The average American diet is the most calorie-laden, yet one of the least nutritious in the world. But is this due to choice or necessity?
People of color suffer from diet-related illnesses at a higher rate than Whites. Many also live in areas with little access to healthy, affordable, and easy-to-prepare foods. Outnumbered by the masses of fast-food restaurants and liquor stores that fill the neighborhood, the few healthy stores are also out of price range for people below median income.
Through neighborhood mapping and analyzing health statistics, participants in this Oregon Writing Project workshop will discover correlations between race, income, and food accessibility and engage in an essay writing lesson appropriate across middle and high school grade levels.
This class is part of our Workshop Series.
