Greetings from Lexington, KY!

I’m Rowena Mahloch —

Social Justice Advocate, Radio Show Host, & Writer

For over 10 years, I’ve been serving as a Community Volunteer advocating for issues focused on social and economic justice. And I also love food — whole, real food that is minimally processed, local, and sustainably farmed or raised. In April 2017, these worlds collided when I started hosting Lexington Food Justice Radio. I believe that equitable access to good, healthy food is a basic human right. So I created this website to share my work and promote an equitable food system.



I’m a Food Justice Junkie & Real Food Geek — Wife and Fur Momma. In previous lives, I was a software engineer and a lawyer. I’ve also taken 4 Bar Exams!
