This week on The Farm Report, host Erin Fairbanks welcomes Manolia Charlotin, Managing Editor of Feet in 2 Worlds, Tamara Dawson, Director of Programs at the Bed-Stuy Campaign Against Hunger (BSCAH), and Jenae Joseph, a Green Team Leader for BSCAH. Talking about the amazing things that are happening in NYC's own backyard, Manolia, Tamara, and Jenae share the background, current operations, and community impact that the Bed-Stuy Campaign Against Hunger has had since its inception in 1998. Delving deeper into the notion of a food pantry, the group discusses that many times donated food goes to waste because patrons aren't sure how to cook certain items. The BSCAH, led by Dr. Melony Samuels, aims to change the views of the typical food pantry and community gardens, making fresh, local produce affordable and accessible to the masses. Tune in for an informative and motivating discussion! This program was brought to you by Cain Vineyard and Winery.

"When a client enters the pantry, we provide them with food in a dignified aspect. The pantry is not set up like a typical pantry where you get online and receive a bag of food, but it's set up in a supermarket style pantry." [7:36]

"She (Dr. Melony Samuels) was very determined that she wanted to meet the needs of the community." [23:08]

--Tamara Dawson on The Farm Report

"In these gardens, young people all the way up to seniors are learning how to grow naturally. Their hands are in the dirt." [35:52]
