The Indignity of Food Insecurity

Food justice activists call attention to the embeddedness of structural racism in global food systems operating at local scale, perhaps best illuminated by the prevalence of food insecurity in low-income Black neighborhoods nationwide. This research explores the conundrum of resolving food insecurity catalyzed by historic racial discrimination without violating the Constitution’s prohibitions against racial discrimination in publicly funded food justice programming. It argues that the answer to resolving the indignities of food insecurity provoked by racial discrimination lies in embracing a progressive constitutionalism that takes seriously the legacy of white supremacy in the United States political economy.
