On August 4th, we hosted Becca Warta and Josh England. Becca is the Program and Marketing Director for KY Double Dollars . Josh is the Market Manager for Lexington Farmers Market. They discuss KY Double Dollars. A Program that increases the buying power of KY families who lack easy access to fresh food. And increases the economic impact of KY grown food within communities and for farmers.
Our July 7th show featured Mae Suramek -- owner of and head noodle slinger at Noodle Nirvana in Berea, KY. Mae shared her trajectory from social justice activist to social justice entrepreneur. Dr. Jeff Richey, Professor of Religion and Asian Studies at Berea College, also joined us to provide a framework for understanding "culinary appropriation."
Listen to the April 28, 2017 Lexington Food Justice Radio with Mac Stone of Elmwood Stock Farm. Great conversation as Mac talks about his trajectory as a farmer, the history of the farm, the ins-and-outs of organic certification, as well as the benefits of a CSA to the farmer, the consumer, and the community.
I've been so busy these last few months. Working on several projects -- and even more in the works. All to advance my Mission to make Real Food accessible to everyone. And on Friday (April 14th), I'll be launching one of these projects. So excited to start hosting Lexington Food Justice Radio Show!!
In the heart of Bear, KY, my good friend, Mae Suramek, recently opened Noodle Nirvana. A truly heavenly place where Real Food and social responsibility collide with Mae's innovative business concept to "Build Your Bowl - Feed Your Soul". Noodle Nirvana serves up tasty warm slurps of happiness that fill your belly and touch your humanity!
Sustainably raised meat is fantastic!! it tastes great. And produced without destroying the environment or threatening public health. Buying this type of meat also supports responsible farmers who choose to use sound agricultural practices. If you're not familiar with sustainable meat, this article is a good place to start learning more.
When we started our Real Food journey, our motivation was lifelong health. As we learned more about eating food that is whole, unprocessed, and unrefined, we realized that this lifestyle is not only about what we eat, but also a reflection of our values. Because when we vote with our food dollars we affect social change every day with every bite we take.
