Food Literacy Center Launches Raising Kale Podcast, Seeking to Educate Listeners on the Impact of Food for Health, Economy, Environment and Community
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sacramento, CA – March 10, 2021 – Food Literacy Center announced today the launch of the Raising Kale podcast in partnership with Entercom Communications. Raising Kale will be available nationwide via the RADIO.COM app and website, and everywhere else podcasts can be found beginning March 10.
Food Literacy Center seeks to serve local Sacramento families and educate students about nutrition, cooking, and gardening through active play with the intention to improve their health, environment, and economy. The pandemic has shed light on our fractured food systems through empty grocery store shelves and families experiencing hunger amid an unstable economy. Because of this, Food Literacy Center is launching Raising Kale, a podcast on a mission to tell the stories of our food problems and the people bringing solutions.
Hosted by Amber Stott, Founder and Chief Food Genius, Food Literacy Center, and produced by Entercom Sacramento, Raising Kale is an educational call to action with food. The podcast will welcome distinguished guests to explain the impact food has on various aspects of our lives and offer ways listeners can help in their local community.
“The Raising Kale podcast represents a long-time goal of mine for the nonprofit: to provide wider education to the public outside the walls of our elementary schools,” said Stott. “I have enjoyed building this podcast with the talented team at Entercom Sacramento. I get to speak to my peers in food thought leadership across the nation and share their powerful stories. I hope listeners will join me to learn more and to raise kale in their own community.”
Stott added that the podcast guests – otherwise known as Kale Raisers – are involved with remarkable, action-oriented initiatives from improving school lunches to building local food economies in Haiti to ending hunger through culinary education in San Diego.
“This podcast proves that people can use food to make the world a better place,” said Stacey Kauffman, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Entercom Sacramento. “Sacramento is America’s Farm to Fork capital, so we see the intersects and impact first-hand that food has on our health, economy, environment and community. By sharing these powerful and engaging stories, we seek to educate and inspire our audience on how food can be a tool for good, and how they can make a difference in their own homes and communities.”
The Raising Kale podcast is available nationwide on the RADIO.COM app and everywhere else podcasts can be found. Fans can also connect with the podcast on social media via Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
