Nutritious, healthy bread is key to social justice when it comes to food for several reasons.
We teach Baking as Lifestyle Medicine as an Empowerment Model
Why? Because we believe that baking and teaching baking as Lifestyle Medicine is a key principle in social justice. This about far more than just bread. it is about the fact that access to nutritious food is a basic human right, and ensuring that everyone has access to healthy, nourishing food is an important aspect of social justice. Bread made from whole grains and other nutritious ingredients can help to provide essential nutrients like fiber, protein, and vitamins, which are important for good health.
Second, nutritious bread can help to address health disparities and promote health equity. Many low-income and marginalized communities have limited access to healthy food options, and as a result, may suffer from diet-related health problems like obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. By promoting access to healthy, nutritious bread, we can help to improve the health and wellbeing of these communities and reduce health disparities.
Third, promoting the production and consumption of nutritious, healthy bread can help to support sustainable and regenerative agriculture practices. By sourcing grains from local, sustainable farms and using traditional methods of bread making, we can help to build more resilient and sustainable food systems that are better able to withstand environmental pressures like climate change.
Overall, nutritious, healthy bread is an important component of a socially just food system that promotes health, equity, and sustainability. By supporting the production and consumption of healthy, nourishing bread, we can help to build more resilient and equitable food systems that benefit everyone.
