Rhode Island is a diverse state that has experienced severe economic hardship in recent years. Fostering a just food system is inherently connected to economic justice. This section of the map seeks to explore how food production extends beyond farmers markets or urban gardens. Food comes from farmers and their fields, but it also comes from processing and packaging facilities that employ thousands of Rhode Islanders. Who works in these facilities? What are their experiences in the workplace? How do those experiences inform the conversation about food justice?
