Podcast Feature With Charm City Dreamers
We Talked With Charm City Dreamers…
We are excited to announce that a podcast episode recorded last month with our Executive Director, Wendy Jeffries and podcaster, Zack Garber went live this week! Let’s hear from her about her discussion on TWK’s work and dreams:
It was such an honor and lots of fun to talk with Zack Garber on his podcast, Charm City Dreamers. As you will hear, we talked about a lot of things including my path to TasteWise Kids and the importance of the work we are doing to inspire and empower Baltimore area kids around food and building healthy eating habits.
Check out this excerpt from the podcast:
Zack Garber: What are some of the biggest gaps that you’re seeing on the (food) educational front that surprises you that you guys are being able to help bridge for some of these kids in your programs?
Wendy Jeffries: I think one thing is that often kids get overlooked, which is really simple. I think a lot of food access and education work is geared towards adults. And while that’s really important, I think it’s forgotten that kids are often charged with or have the ability to make some decisions on their own. Starting young, and allowing them to learn the skills, to be able to speak up for themselves and empower them to make informed food choices.
