Fruit, vegetables, grass-fed meat - it’s a lot of work to grow, and the government doesn’t subsidize it the way it supports those big fields of corn and soybeans.

That can put healthy, local food out of reach for people who don’t have a lot of money.

And it’s not just about money. If there’s no grocery store nearby, no place to buy local veggies, you’re stuck. And once you’re thinking about geography, you realize race matters too. If you’re Black or Latino in this country, you’re much more likely to live in an area where it’s hard to get healthy food - and that’s no accident. That’s systemic racism. In this episode, we’re going to hear from urban farmers and Black farmers, on why it’s especially hard for their communities to get good food, and what they’re doing about that.
