Episode details

Behind every ingredient, bite, and meal we eat is a farmer's story. 500M smallholder farms are supporting 2B people globally. Yet, the majority of the world’s hungry are farmers. U.S. agriculture today appears to be as segregated as it was a century ago, with farmers of color at a significant disadvantage. Today, they cultivate less than half of one percent of the country’s farmland. Dr. Larissa Estes-White, DrPH shares her family legacy in farming across the U.S. and Philippines. She tells stories of racist land ownership, food sovereignty, and hopes to build a just circular food economy. Dr. Estes-White is the Executive Director of ALL IN Alameda County.
