Devin Madden on Everything’s On the Table

“Teachers are incredibly well-positioned to make change, but they’ve largely been neglected in this food movement. They haven’t been invited to the table to have this conversation.” [25:10]

Deborah Lewison Grant on Everything’s On the Table

“We are looking at the farmer’s market as not only a point of access for healthy food, but also a place to educate the community and consumers about these other factors that affect health.” [39:15]
