The Check-In: Gardening And Food Access

Apr 24, 2020

One thing during this coronavirus crisis that’s changed for all of us in some form is food - how we’re accessing it, how we’re cooking it and maybe even how we’re growing it.

In this episode, we talk about how we’re getting food and what we’re doing with it during this crisis. Our guests are deeply entrenched in the food world and use their talents to help organize community food and gardening networks.

Our guests:

Nina Mukerjee Furstanau, writer and journalist who’s written a memoir called “Biting Through The Skin” among other works. She’s also served as a recent Fulbright Global Research scholar in India and before that she worked on food/nutrition projects in Ghana and Mozambique for U.S. Aid and the McKnight Foundation.

Bill McKelvey with MU Extension’s Interdisciplinary Center for Food Security. He orchestrates community garden projects, farm-to-school pipelines and food pantry support among other projects.
