American Food Equity Conference
Seneca One Tower
Buffalo, New York 14203
Wednesday, October 12th
7:30 am — 4:30 pm
In the aftermath of the May 14, 2022 racially-motivated mass shooting at an East Buffalo supermarket, a national discussion ensued concerning America’s chronic racial inequities: fresh food access; nutrition education, healthcare, and related disinvestments in urban minority communities.
Gather America’s leading food justice scholars, educators, investment and finance experts, and urban growth leaders to a) examine food inequity, b) hear and respond to Buffalo Black citizens’ presentations on existing efforts to reduce the “grocery gap,” and c) issue a report to the nation on innovative models to create food justice.
