Melissa Danielle, coordinator of Bed Stuy Bounty, entered the world of food advocacy and food justice after a series of WTF? moments. After seeing the reality of meeting so-called vegans who didn’t eat vegetables, and people who had absolutely no idea where their food was coming from or what they were really eating, she realized she needed to take charge. Soon after, she founded Bed Stuy Bounty, a buying club that prioritizes purchasing local foods. Tune in to hear some of the great things Melissa is currently working on.
