The Food and Ag. program’s goal is to empower Mission students and their families to: 1) be active and engaged in food justice movements and, 2) to make healthy living decisions within the broader context of the economic, ecological, and social components of food systems. The Food and Ag. program frames food justice as a holistic issue within the context of these systems rather than a singular focus on nutrition or greening movements. Similarly, healthy living decisions take into account this holistic approach and includes the interconnection of food consumption (cooking, nutrition) and growing practices (organic/commercial, water use, and labor practices).
