Food Justice

A new TV program aims to show its viewers a rare look into homelessness, poverty — and the gap for access to healthy food.

Recently premiered on TPT, Food Justice is a co-production of Saint Paul – Ramsey County Public Health and Twin Cities PBS with additional funding provided by the Minnesota Department of Health’s Statewide Health Improvement Program (SHIP).

“We are encouraging family, friends and neighbors, and community groups to watch the show together to become more aware of individuals and families facing food insecurity, and to discuss creative ways they can improve access to healthy foods,” says Donald Gault, Healthy Communities division manager at Saint Paul – Ramsey County Public Health. “Food Justice hopes to raise awareness about food insecurity and highlight the hard work and creative efforts of shelters, meal programs, and food shelves to make high quality, nutritious foods available for their guests and clients.”
