Description

Our food choices impact the environment, animal welfare, communities, and personal health. And in the United States, our food system reinforces inequities in health along racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic lines. Learning about food and food justice empowers us to make informed choices, support sustainable farming, and enact changes to create a more equitable and vibrant food system.

Dynamic, award-winning professor Christine Rai is an interdisciplinarian who specializes in food studies, culture, and folklore. She leads international and local trips and tours, talks, and tastings. Christine lives outside of Washington, D.C. in Montgomery County’s Agricultural Reserve.
