Flanner House in Indianapolis has a long tradition in Indianapolis. Some new faces, including today’s guest, Food Justice Coordinator Mat Davis, are adding to that legacy. For over 100 years Flanner House has been serving the community on the Westside of Indianapolis. This summer they are bringing back a garden program that will be connected to an employment program with the hope of helping, even more, people. With the help of former podcast guest, Jonathan Lawler of Brandywine Creek Farms, they hope to have the largest urban farm in Indianapolis to feed, train and empower the youth of Indianapolis.
There is a lot of great information about the problems facing our communities in Indianapolis. If you are just learning about the issues of food access, food insecurity and food justice this episode will give you a lot of information and even more to think about.
