Food and Racism:

What is vegan racism? Vegan Race Wars: how the mainstream ignores vegans of color.

Food Love by Might Be Vegan

“COVID-19 is disproportionately impacting the health of Black and Latino communities largely due to underlying, diet-related health issues. These poor diets are the result of generations of racially-biased systemic issues that have led to disproportionate access to healthy, fresh food, and quality healthcare. Thankfully, not only have diets rich in plant-based foods been proven to improve immune systems, but they also have been shown to reverse many of these diet-related illnesses over time.” - Kimberly Renee, Food Love

Donate to Food Love by Might Be Vegan. Splendid Spoon is choosing to donate to this organization to help people (especially Black, Brown, and those living in low-income communities) who are experiencing food insecurity, gain direct-to-door access to fresh, healthy plant-based food.

Local (NYC and Brooklyn) resources about community gardens, food deserts, etc can be found at Urban Harvest and Central Brooklyn’s Food Coop.

Central Brooklyn Food Coop (CBFC) is one of the only urban Black-led food cooperatives in the nation – and the only one in New York City. After six years of surveying and planning, they are ready to take root and open our doors in Summer 2020. Help them take the critical step of raising funds for their inaugural down payment so they can secure their home.
