In this episode, Rachel joins me to talk about the hidden racism that no one talks about. Before talking to Rachel I was not aware of how the food industry perpetuating social injustice on the most vulnerable communities.
I also wasn't aware that many members of the African American & Hispanic communities are forced to live in food deserts and are at risk for more health issues, including mental health.
Rachel also talks about the importance of valuing our ancestral foods and learning more about the benefits of basic food staples related to our specific cultures.
