Food Rights by Bike with Know Your City

Portland, which is often lauded for our local and sustainable food culture, faces a public health crisis stemming from tens of thousands of residents who lack access to the affordable and healthy food options. Redlining by banks and retail outlets, the outmigration of jobs, and food deserts paint a stark reality for food access—and this issue is clearly exacerbated by racism and class discrimination.

Food Rights by Bike is a new tour that highlights the North Portland community through a lens of a different kind of foodie movement, one led by immigrants, people of color, and low-income Portlanders working towards an end to food injustice. Topics include gentrification, displacement, culturally responsive food gardens, and diverse food culture. You’ll have the chance to listen to speakers with first hand experience along the way, such as:

Tour destinations:
Queen of Sheba
Sisters of the Road Food Garden
Portland Fruit Tree Project
Queen of Sheba
Sons of Haiti Lodge

Tour starts at 11am sharp! Attendees are advised to get there by 10:45am.
