Course 3 (April 9, 2024, 3:30 – 4:30 pm EST): Barriers for People with Disabilities When It Comes to Food Equity

Join Kelly’s Kitchen as we get into the barriers for people with disabilities when it comes to food equity, food access, and medically appropriate and equitable advice. We will address some of the nutrition advice and suggestions provided to people with disabilities that can be dangerous and lead to body dysmorphia or disordered eating. This involves a deep dive into BMI and meal plans, and how they are often rooted in ableism and racism. A member of the disability community who has experienced bias when it comes to nutrition and physical disability will share their experience. We will also hear from the founder of Boltz to Nutz Farm in Ohio about the importance of accessible kitchens for people with various disabilities.
