GREENING OUR FOOD DESERTS
Poor people and poor nutrition are entwined. Too often, the poor live in
food deserts, where healthy food has disappeared. Can food oases be
created? And will residents partake of healthy, fresh food?
With host RAUL VASQUEZ and with guests, in order of appearance: YOUNG KIM, Executive Director, Fondy Food Center; STACI YOUNG, PhD, Assistant Professor, Medical College of Wisconsin; BEN GRAMLING, Sustainable Development Manager,
Sixteenth Street Clinic; and VENICE WILLIAMS, Director, Alice's Garden.
