Armando Nieto of the Community Food and Justice Coalition will speak Wednesday evening about “Defining Food Justice” as part of the Yolo Farm to Every Fork event series, highlighting farm contributions and food security issues in the region. Admission is free.

Nieto will speak from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Yolo County Building, 600 A St. in Davis. He will discuss access to healthy food, production and preparation that is healthy and humane for humans, animals and ecosystems, protecting agricultural land and fair food commerce.

“Understanding the many facets of food justice helps us as a community learn where to put our energies to fight for a fair food system for all,” said Yolo County Supervisor Don Saylor, who has organized Yolo Food Connect.

The Community Food and Justice Coalition “promotes the basic human right of access to healthy food,” Nieto said. “Through education, organizing and advocacy, we collaborate with communities and organizations on issues of healthy food access, poverty, land use, climate change and immigration.”

Before joining the coalition as its executive director, Nieto served as CEO of Redefining Progress; was managing director of the Center on Race, Poverty & the Environment; and was executive director at Eagle Eye Institute in Somerville, Mass.

In 2005, he established the Communications and Community Engagement Department at the Coalition for Clean Air. He is president of the Tulare County Community Water Center and has served on the advisory boards of Just Communities, PG&E ClimateSmart External Advisory Group and the Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy.
