The tour will leave from G R Ford Academic Center promptly at 3:30 and return there as its last stop. Cyclists will bike a two mile jaunt with stops at ten food destinations: 1. LINC Soul Food Café; 2. Duthler's grocery store; 3. Browning Claytor health clinic; 4. Madison Square CRC food pantry; 5. Mr. Henry's garden; 6. OKT grower’s garden; 7. BP Gas Station; 8. Burger King; 9. Kent County DHS; and 10. The Southeast Area Farmers’ Market.

 

At each stop, OKT tour guides will dialogue with the tour attendees about the kinds of food available in neighborhood, food justice, food security and how to access to healthy foods in neighborhood. In addition, OKT will furnish its seven-part series of hand-outs on Food Justice. These answer questions about what is food justice, the role women of color have played in the food justice movement, farmers’ markets’ role in food justice and more.
