What Food Means pt. 1 with Amy Halloran and Brenda Ann Kenneally

COVID-19 revealed the fragility of the US food supply and exacerbated the food insecurity tens of millions of Americans stuggle with every day. But what is the ideology that accepts hunger in the richest country on Earth? How did junk food become so widespread? What does a better food culture look like? This is part one of a two-part conversation with food justice activist and author of “The New Bread Basket” Amy Halloran, and the nationally recognized photojournalist Brenda Ann Kenneally, whose photoessay “America at Hunger’s Edge” appeared in the New York Times this September. Reported by HMM Correspondent Miles Mikofsky.
