Our Land: Project Feed The Hood

1202 Our Land Feed the Hood

July 13, 2018 – Project Feed the Hood is a food justice program in Albuquerque that connects communities with healthy food and young people with the land (and a paycheck). Begun out of the Southwest Organizing Project, a 38-year old nonprofit focused on social justice, Project Feed the Hood has a community garden not far from the Albuquerque Sunport, the Ilsa and Rey Garduño Community Garden, and pilot programs at ten schools, including Van Buren Middle School, where co-founder Travis McKenzie teaches.

On this month’s episode of Our Land, we visit with McKenzie, SWOP members, student interns and McKenzie’s mentor, South Valley farmer Lorenzo Candelaria.

Bus Passes For Youth In Albuquerque

Bus Passes For Youth In Albuquerque

July 6, 2018 – When you’re too young to drive or don’t own a car, getting around town is challenging. Together for Brothers, an organization led by young men of color, recently conducted an assessment on the potential impact of bus passes on the health of young people in Albuquerque.

Producer Sarah Gustavus sat down with three members of the organization to learn more about the needs they identified and the importance of transportation in the overall health of families and the community.
