We host our newest edition of Sound Bites, our series on our food and our world. We begin the hour with regular Sound Bites commentator Tom Philpott, who will reflect upon some of the biggest food and agriculture stories of 2016. Philpott is the food and agriculture correspondent for Mother Jones.
We also take a close look at the initiative in Maryland to begin a statewide Food Charter, with the Institute for Public Health Innovation. Our guests will be Christine Bergmark, Project Coordinator of the Maryland Food Charter; and Denzel Mitchell, farmer, educator, food justice advocate and political commentator.
