Food Justice

Feb 7, 2017

The term "food justice" refers to a community's right to grow, sell, and eat healthy food that is fresh, nutritious, affordable, and culturally-appropriate. In this three-part series, Big Fat Farm Show host Kellie Pettyjohn talks with people who are all working in different ways to address the issue of food justice in their communities. These individuals were all part of recent food justice workshops that were held at Fort Lewis College on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

In the third and final part in this series, Kellie talks with Stephanie and Amanda from Project Feed The Hood, an Albuquerque organization working to provide lower income neighborhoods access to healthy foods.


In part two, Beverly Grant of Mo' Better Green discusses how we've lost our connection to growing food and her efforts to bring healthy fruits and vegetables to the food swamps of urban Denver.

In part one, Kellie spoke with Brandon Francis from the New Mexico State University Agricultural Science Center.
