Episode Info:

Hello listeners, In this second webisode of Communities Building Power for Health, The Praxis Project interviews Genoveva Islas, the director of Cultiva La Salud, an organization working for health and social justice in Fresno, CA. Fresno is a food desert and obesity and diabetes are a major issue disproportionately affecting the health of the community. In an effort to improve health through local food choices, Cultiva La Salud is introducing a new program: Vendors For Health. Vendors For Health are mobile fruit and veggie vendors who are determined to give their community healthier food options! We visited their community kitchen, Food Commons Fresno, where mobile vendors prepare their daily product and spoke to Genoveva about her experiences and insights organizing Vendors For Health, changing city policy and building power in the community.
