Sound Bites: Building a Model for Food and Jobs in Sandtown-Winchester

Sandtown-WinchesterDecember 31, 2015 – Segment 2

It’s another episode of our series on our food and our world, Sound Bites. This week we bring you the first part of our Good Food Gathering town hall meeting held June 16 in partnership with Hopkins’ Baltimore Food and Faith Project, titled Sandtown: Building a Model for Food and Jobs. The town hall took place at Jubilee Arts, located in the Sandtown Winchester neighborhood of Baltimore, which was at the center of the Baltimore Uprising and was the neighborhood where Freddie Gray lived and was arrested.

The panel was comprised of three members of the faith community who are working on food and employment issues in interesting and effective ways: Elder C.W. Harris of Strength to Love II Farm and Newborn Holistic Ministries; Antoine Bennet of New Song Community Church; and Melissa Kelly of the No Boundaries Coalition.

This segment originally aired in June 2015.
