NEPM: Benjamin Bland, Springfield Dept. of Health and Human Services


Benjamin Bland joins Phil, Monte, and Kaliis to talk about his efforts to make local, healthy food available to everyone in Springfield through the Mass in Motion program at the Springfield Department of Health and Human Services. 

The extra barriers that always exist for People of Color and other disenfranchised groups make this work difficult. Political inertia too. But Benjamin and other food justice champions at places like the Springfield Food Policy Council and other local organizations are collaborating to make a real difference. And you can help!
