What is food justice? What is food instability? How do the two relate? How can people of all income levels have enough safe, healthy food to eat? How can art help raise awareness and bring about social change?

We are six students and one teacher currently working on a Just Food project for our Current Topics in Social Justice course at University of Illinois Laboratory High School. We are seeking funding for our Just Food cookbook which will chronical our journey seeking answers to these questions, provide teen tested and approved recipes, and share resources we have enjoyed along the way.

We are raising money to cover the printing cost of our cookbook which we hope to give away free at our community wide Just Food cooking class in May. We need to raise at least $250 to cover the initial round of printing but any additional money raised will cover additional cookbooks and pay for our free cooking class. It is our dream to print the cookbooks in color and include images from the stencils and block prints that we made earlier this year.

We have completed two other art projects this year, one a set of mud stencils that we decorated the outside of our school with and the other a set of block prints that were shown as part of an art exhibit at the Independent Media Center in the fall and are currently on display in the hallway at Uni High. You can see examples of these in our video and if you choose to help fund our cookbook project you can receive a signed cookbook, hand printed notecards, and a custom stenciled t-shirt as a reward.
