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.


On this episode of the Big Fat Farm Show, host Kellie Pettyjohn interviews James Hunter, Farm Director of We Over Me Farm at Paul Quinn College.  The college made the news when they plowed under their football field to plant a garden, leading to a cascade of changes in the local food system.
