This week on Just Food Stories, hosts Jacquie Berger and Alison Cayne take a trip to the Bronx with Lily Kesselman, professional photographer and founder of Brook Park Chickens. With the help of Friends of Brook Park, Lily brought a chicken coop to the South Bronx- but the question is, "Why?" Tune into this episode to learn about food access in the South Bronx, and why so many residents are volunteering with the chicken project. How did the arrival of chickens at Brook Park lead to the institution of a farmer's market in the area? Find out how Lily partners with other community organizations in order to be effective in bringing fresh and local food to her neighborhood. Thanks to our sponsor, Rolling Press. Music by Idgy Dean.

"These are true community projects. The eggs are a huge incentive for people who want to be volunteers... I think the need for fresh food in the community is the main attraction to the program." [11:00]
