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.
