Food for the Soul: Healing Through Food Justice & Equity
Show Notes

We are kicking off Season 4 of our podcast with an amazing episode and guest: William Jennings is a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America where he studied Culinary Arts and Applied Food Studies where he gained a professional understanding of the culinary industry. Seeking to gain additional knowledge of the food system, he pursued the Applied Food Studies program where he gained a clear understanding of food systems, ethics surrounding food, and ecology. He is disrupting dehumanization by fighting against food insecurity and injustice in his community.

William is a Maryland native, who currently lives in Prince George’s County where he also interned this Summer with the Prince George’s Food Equity Council as the Summer Healthy Food Access Intern. When he isn’t learning about our current food system, he is spending his time practicing photography and painting.
