Farming for social justice

A WorkWell podcast with Leah Penniman

Ending injustice in the food system

Creating access to fresh, healthy foods

Food is a basic human need, but we can’t all equally access it. Many who live in urban areas, often BIPOC communities, don’t have access to the fresh produce that is so important to a healthy diet. How can we tackle this inequity?

On this episode, Deloitte chief well-being officer Jen Fisher talks with Leah Penniman, cofounder of Soul Fire Farm, a BIPOC-centered community farm committed to ending racism and injustice in the food system.

For young people to be on the lands, for their bodies to be free to move, for them to be able to eat good food, for them to see black and brown adults who look like them running their own business, this just starts to expand that feeling of what’s possible and what can be meaningful in their lives.
