Tackling food deserts with plant a row

By Gillian Hall & Jennifer Meislin

Our idea was to share a story about food deserts and the efforts to mitigate them by introducing the program Plant a Row for the Hungry. This podcast illustrates the evolution of a program from its very beginnings to its present, documenting the challenges associated with taking on a task as daunting as feeding the hungry. Food deserts are a common problem faced throughout the United States, and this program helps to alleviate the impacts they have on disenfranchised communities.
