“The Color of Food” Interactive Map.

“The Color of Food” is an ongoing multimedia project featuring a map of farmers of color, and a photo documentary, tools that are fostering the sharing of stories and the creation of food justice networks.

Created by Brown.Girl.Farming (Natasha Bowens), a young biracial farmer, “The Color of Food” puts farmers of color on the map and incites conversation on race, food, hunger, land access, and social history. The photo below, taken by Bowens at Yard Bird Farm, Louisiana, will be published in her upcoming photo documentary.
