Soundbites Sandtown (Credit: Steiner Show)June 15, 2017 – Segment 2

We hosed a special archive edition of Sound Bites, our series on our food and our world. We traveled to the Sandtown Winchester neighborhood of Baltimore for a town hall meeting on food sovereignty, held in partnership with Johns Hopkins’ Baltimore Food and Faith Project, and titled Sandtown: Building a Model for Food and Jobs. I talked with three members of the faith community who were 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 Kellyof the No Boundaries Coalition.
