5-17-10: Securing Our Food
Baltimore city recently named a Food Czar. That’s slight hyperbole: Holly Freishtat’s precise title is “Food Policy Director,” and she’s working part time. But it will be her job to lead the battle against bad eating habits and the city’s alarming obesity epidemic. It seems like a good time to take stock of what we know about Charm City’s eating and health habits. Sheilah is joined by two people who have been working on these issues for years–Seema Iyer, Chief of Research & Strategic Planning with Baltimore City she co-chaired Baltimore’s Food Policy Task Force, and Anne Palmer of the Center for a Livable Future at Johns Hopkins University. She heads the Eating for the Future program there.
