Is fairness an extension of justice? Are fairness and justice linked or are they separate and distinct ideas? For instance, if it is unfair that some people have enough to eat while do not, is it also unjust?
Your question is not an easy one to answer.
From what I gather justice seems to focus on correcting a wrong.
Fairness seems to focus on being unbiased, evenhanded.
To address your question I would say that under fairness if one were to have more food than someone else that to me would be unfair. Whether or not this is unjust at this point I can't say.
