Wil Bullock – You Are Where You Eat: Growing Urban Food
Access to healthy food reduces the risk of disease. White neighborhoods have, on average, five times as many supermarkets as Black neighborhoods. The Food Project in Boston engages inner-city youth in personal and social change through meaningful work in sustainable agriculture. Wil Bullock joined the organization as part of a new generation of leaders. He blends his passion for food justice with his talent as a singer/songwriter, leveraging his music to engage listeners – especially youth – to address access to nutritious food.
This speech was given at the 2005 Bioneers National Conference and is part of the Food Justice Vol. 1 Collection.
