In 2016 the MFAN Equity Action Team designed and facilitated an Equity in Policy Timeline event. The team constructed an 80-foot timeline of many of the institutional and governmental policies and decisions, as well as social movements and grassroots actions that have taken place over the centuries to create today’s food system. At the meeting, partners “walked the timeline.” Along the way, partners saw tangible representations of the policies, systems and environmental factors that have led to Minnesota having some of the (greatest disparities in hunger, healthy food access, income, and other measures of health and economic self-sufficiency, across racial and social lines).
