Tune in to learn about food aid, and how it has the potential to wipe out local food economies in developing nations. Hear about the phenomenon of food deserts, and how food justice activists are making CSA shares accessible to low-income communities. Find out about Beverly's work with Other Worlds, an organization that supports women's rights and agriculture across the world.
