Sound Bites: MD Pesticide Reporting Work Group | Recipe: Kale Smoothies | Malik Yakini On Racism In The Food System


July 16, 2013 – Hour 2

It’s another episode of Sound Bites! We begin the hour talking with two members of the Maryland Pesticide Reporting and Information Work Group who hold very different perspectives: DelCharles Otto, Maryland State Delegate representing District 38A, Somerset & Wicomico Counties; and Andy Fellows, Chesapeake Regional Director of Clean Water Action.

Next we share a recipe for delicious and healthy kale smoothies, from Adahmh Roland, a folk singer who runs the Tin Can Singing Telegram Service.

We close this episode of Sound Bites with Malik Yakini, Executive Director of the Detroit Black Community Food Security Network and founder of D-Town Farm, an urban farm in Detroit. We discuss racism in the food system and the food movement, as well as Yakini’s work fighting for social justice, food equity, and food security for the people of Detroit.
