Among the various movements for social justice today, few struggles are as complex and intersectional as the new food movement. The climate crisis, rising economic inequality, and the neoliberal political agenda known as “free trade” have led progressives to scrutinize the production and consumption of food as never before. From opposition to factory farms led by animal-rights and environmental activists to the return of local farmers’ markets in communities across the United States, contemporary food politics have become an inspirational model for progressive change, even as food safety, poverty and hunger, lax regulations, and the environmental impacts of corporate agriculture continue to pose new challenges. The essays in this issue touch on Jewish veganism, indigenous peoples’ resistance to big agribusiness, the hidden externalities of low food prices, the sexual politics of meat, and much more.
