Sound Bites: Baltimore Food Environment Map | Veganism and Animal Sentience

Pigtown6June 18, 2015 – Segment 3

On the newest edition of our series on our food and our world, Sound Bites,we look at the 2015 Food Environment Map Report released last week by the City of Baltimore, Baltimore Development Corporation, Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future and the Baltimore City Department of Planning. The report reflects data from a study conducted to inform food policy planning in Baltimore, and it indicates that one in four Baltimore City residents – and nearly one in three children – live in food deserts. Joining us to discuss the Report are: Holly Freishtat, Baltimore City Food Policy Director, Office of Sustainability; Amanda Buczynski, Mapping Program Manager at the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future; and Joyce Smith, community liaison at the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future.

Then it’s part two of our conversation on veganism and animal sentience, with: Brenda Sanders, Executive Director of the Better Health Better Life organization, co-organizer of the Vegan Soul Fest, and a Director of Open the Cages Alliance, an animal advocacy organization in Baltimore that hosts the annual Vegan Living Program; and Naijha Wright, co-Owner of Land of Kush Restaurant and co-organizer of the Vegan Soul Fest.
