The WVU Food Justice Lab is an experimental space for research and action focused on challenging food system inequalities. We are housed in the Department of Geology and Geography at West Virginia University and the WVU Center for Resilient Communities. In addition to working with research partners we mentor, advise and support students working on food, environmental and development issues while they pursue degrees in geography and related fields at the Ph.D., M.A. and undergraduate levels at WVU.
Students affiliated with the Food Justice Lab participate in seminars, research, and real-world problem solving associated with our on-going projects. Students are also encouraged and supported to experiment with new ways of combining learning, research, and action to create alternative futures.
