Finding Food Justice At The Farmers Market

Mar 18, 2019

It's hard enough to eat well and stay in shape, but, in several parts of Georgia, residents don't even have access to nutritious foods. 

The Georgia Farmers Market Association is trying to bring awareness to the issue and help overcome barriers to access. Its initiatives connect small growers with communities that don't have good options to buy fresh, high-quality meat and produce. 

To get the word out about issues of food insecurity and food equity, the association is launching Just Food Weekend. Sagdrina Brown-Jalal, executive director of the Georgia Farmers Market Association, joined "On Second Thought" to talk about the roadblocks along the path toward food justice. Chef Zu, founder of Kings Apron and a sustainable plant-based chef, also joined the conversation.
