Raising Kale tackles honest food issues served with joy. What does broccoli have to do with a chefarmer in Illinois and a school kid in California? And what is a chefarmer anyhow? If eating your vegetables can make you healthier, listening to Raising Kale will make you smarter–without any snooty side effects. Raising Kale shares vegetable stories from across America. I’ll talk to chefs, community activists, healthcare providers, and even elementary kids.

The series hails from America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital, Sacramento, California, hosted by Amber Stott, Chief Food Genius of the nonprofit Food Literacy Center. 

You don’t have to run a business or have a visionary idea to help improve our food system. We need these people–but we also need you! You can plug into the amazing projects that exist around the country, and during each episode, I’ll tell you how.
