This week on Just Food Stories, Jacquie welcomes Reverend Robert Ennis Jackson to the program to talk about his amazing work in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Bedford-Stuyvesant. The Reverend has lent his hand in co-founding many organizations such as the Brooklyn Rescue Mission Urban Harvest Center, Healthy Harvest Food Pantries, Bedford-Stuyvesant Farm, among many others. Explaining his background and what inspired him to bring fresh and nutritious foods into Bedford-Stuyvesant, Reverend Jackson talks about transforming the current food system to promote the health of both consumers and producers, including partnering with Just Food on a chicken coop project. This program has been sponsored by Whole Foods Market.

"We saw that folks that were getting pantry food or donated food were getting less quality food. We had to figure out how to get fresh, healthy, organic, conventional food into the hands of pantry guests, so we started Bed-Stuy Farm." [6:20]

"Our first farm year was about people who were getting out of addiction, helping us clear the land, and seniors helping us plant food, and enjoying the partaking in eating that food." [8:50]
