Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hello! My name is Jordan Honeysucker (she/her). I am currently a third-year student at the University of California, Berkeley and I am majoring in Psychology with a double minor in African American Studies and Global Public Health currently on the Pre-Health track. I am extremely passionate about the intersections of race, environment, and medicine and wish to ensure protective policies for marginalized communities of color affected by environmental racism.

My experience within local government and research has allowed me to also be passionate about writing and publications. I wish to continue writing as means of developing health policies to benefit Indigenous and Black populations.

O1189: Table for Two: Environmental Justice and Food in Splash Fall 2023 (Nov. 18, 2023)
Processed food is increasingly becoming the only food available to many people around the world. This inadequate access to nutritious foods is not the result of scarcity, but rather the result of the government subsidies for key crops that make up the majority of these processed food products. This has also had substantial impact on how food is farmed, processed, and wasted within the environment. From a lack of access to increasing environmental concerns, food insecurity is becoming a critical global issue with food waste only increasing. Likewise, people in poverty are a target demographic for the food industry, due to their economic vulnerability that makes them more limited in choice and prone to purchasing unhealthy food.
