Lexington Food Justice Radio

Know it's been awhile since I've posted. But I've been extremely busy working on a number of projects -- all directly related to my Mission to "Empower people to find their BEST selves through Real Food"!

So here's some of what I've been doing:

  • Started a 10-week online nutrition course (hoping to finish this week)
  • Coached a group through The 21-Day Sugar Detox (while doing the detox too)
  • Started developing a workbook that will help people transition to a Real Food lifestyle (more details soon)

Here are some other projects in the works (but haven't started yet):

  • Developing workshop series (both online and live) to help with the Real Food lifestyle transition
  • Becoming a Certified 21-Day Sugar Detox Coach.

AND in 2 days (April 14th) I will start hosting Lexington Food Justice Radio featured on Lexington Community Radio!!

The episodes will begin airing Friday mornings at 10 AM on WLXU. If you live in Lexington (especially within New Circle Road), you can tune into the terrestrial broadcast on 93.9 FM – if you live further out, you can hear it online on Lexington Community Radio’s website. And I will post the podcast versions of each show on this website.

I'm delighted to have the help of Ben Southworth. Ben loves music and woodworking. But his daytime jam is the Development Director of GleanKY -- An amazing non-profit that utilizes the power of the community to gather and redistribute excess fresh fruits and vegetables to nourish Kentucky’s hungry.

In fact, the April 14th show will feature GleanKY’s Executive Director, Stephanie Wooten. Stephanie just returned from a trip to Salt Lake City to attend the first Annual Gleaners Symposium. So we look forward to discussing her experience and what she hopes to implement here in Lexington.

Our second guest will be Dr. Keiko Tanaka, Professor of Sociology at the University of Kentucky. Dr. Tanaka's research focuses on the role of agricultural science and technology in reconfiguring the relationship between production and consumption in the global context. Her recent work examines knowledge politics surrounding food safety, healthy food, agricultural sustainability, and food localization.

Dr. Tanaka will provide a high-level discussion of food justice concepts. Then discuss her research at UK to help us understand Lexington’s local food system.

We hope these shows will be a forum to engage in a comprehensive and substantive discussion about all facets of food justice. So please tune in (or catch the recording soon after it airs). You can also follow us along at our brand new Facebook page, where you’ll be the first to know about upcoming shows!
