In a world that can feel very divided at times, food is one thing that unites us because in the end, everybody eats! Today, Jaiko is speaking with Meagan Mercedes Bens and Shawn Deangelo Walton from Everybody Eats Together. They are working to build a black-owned and operated food system to end food scarcity in African American communities, starting with Ashview Heights. As a result of the pandemic, many families across America and globally have had to worry about how they are going to feed their families. Everybody Eats has stepped up in a big way to feed the people of Ashview Heights and work toward establishing a food hub so that in future time of crisis, food is not something the people have to worry about.
