How does the American Jewish community address issues of food access, their own and that of the needy? What can we learn from the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) model when considering systems for global food justice? Hear from leaders in the Jewish Food Movement, working both locally and globally, on how these parallel projects address global hunger, local economies, farmers across the world and food justice everywhere.
