The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the inequities of our current food system. Returning to the lands, not just by physical proximity, but through a more intertwined relationship between land and community, is a form of resistance and resilience. This can be achieved through equitable land access but there’s a gap between the information people have and the information people need.

From this research emerged themes that are not only applicable to Chicago, but provide lessons to be applied throughout the country.
