What’s as American as apple pie and still illegal to produce? The answer: hemp. On this episode of Eating Matters, host Jenna Liut speaks with Eric Steenstra, Executive Director of the Hemp Industries Association, and Amy DuFault, Director of Communications at the Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator, about the myriad benefits of this wonderful plant and what advocates are doing to legalize its cultivation in the U.S. Later in the show, Jenna speaks with Jessie Gould, Founder & CEO of Ox Verte, our featured startup of the week.
