CAGJ is proud to announce 2013's Food Justice Urban Hike-a-thon on Beacon Hill. Hikers will help us get a copy of our book “Our Food, Our Right” in every library and independent bookstore in the country!

This year's Hike-a-thon will be a guided exploration of Beacon Hill's social justice and food justice landscape, highlighting the historical and ongoing resistance of folks on the Hill, folks reclaiming land to grow food on, people of color-owned food businesses, the Beacon Hill Food Forest, all with a critical eye on the gentrification of the Hill.

We’ll visit El Centro de la Raza, Beacon Hill Food Forest, Alleycat Acres, and many more! Check back for more details and announcements as we get closer to the hike.

Hikers pledge to raise $50 from their community, and can also assemble a team of friends, families, co-workers, and more to participate (or donate to meet their fundraising pledge) in a Hike-a-thon through Beacon Hill.
