Simply stated, food justice emerges from an inherent critique of both the conventional food system and alternative food efforts as privileged and white. Food justice activist-scholarship aims to engage the critique through collaborative teaching and research that promotes social change. This work is often precarious, tied directly to questions of positionality. In this paper I discuss mistakes I have made in the practice of food justice activist-scholarship by drawing on examples from a photovoice project with youth.
