Our second Spotlight on Equity Conversation was with Morgan McGhee, MPH, RD, Food Corps’ Director of School Nutrition & Leadership. She shared about her background growing up in the south and her career path in Dietetics. It was a delightful conversation in which Morgan’s passion for creating equity in school meals and for Registered Dietitians shined through.
Food Corps is an organization that partners with schools and communities dedicated in nourishing kids, their health, education, and sense of belonging. This comes with the responsibility to practice equitable practices that shift power, resources and access to those most impacted by systemic oppression. She shared the S.H.I.F.T.I.N.G tool created by Food Corps to hold themselves accountable to necessary practices that will lead to justice within their own organization. Listen and learn more about equity in action and how you can use these tools and promising practices to create a more just environment as well.
