Food Tank and Duke University’s World Food Policy Center recently hosted the “Empowering
Eaters” Summit in support of the National Strategy on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health. This
episode of “Food Talk with Dani Nierenberg” features two fireside chats from the event.
First, hear from award-winning chef, author, educator, and advocate Sean Sherman, who sits
down with Dani to discuss the harm colonization has caused to Indigenous food systems, the
investment needed to undo this damage and support Native communities, and why it’s more
important than ever before to build resilience. Then, Dani speaks with Baldemar Velasquez, the
International President and Founder of the Farm Labor Organizing Committee (FLOC). They
explore the false division that exists between farmers and farm workers, the skill and effort
required of farm workers, and the potential benefits of minimum commodity prices for growers.
