17 million households were facing food insecurity at some point in 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. That’s more than 12 percent of people having trouble getting a proper diet, including young folks.

Adult ISH host Nyge Turner leads YR Media youth presenter Christian Romo and co-host Dominique French through some ways Black and brown people are filling a need for quality food. Bing Turner of Heritage Farmers Market breaks down how food deserts reflect systemic classism. Laura Navarro and Luis Jacobo of Urban Tilth share how their neighborhood farm is cultivating a community. And, pop-up restaurant operators Josh Yos and Yared Gebru of Tiny’s World in Oakland talk about how lack of access to diverse ingredients can bring down a restaurant’s menu.
