- LoriKim Alexander, Founder, The Cypher Organization

- Malik Kenyatta Yakini, Co-Founder and Executive Director, Detroit Black Community Food Security Network

“The Food and Justice Podcast is about spotlighting the people currently working on projects that have the potential to revolutionize our food system,” says Brenda Sanders, host of the podcast. “Food justice and food sovereignty justice work is often thankless work that goes unnoticed, but I want to make sure these people and their work are seen and supported.”

Award-winning activist Brenda Sanders is the co-founder of Vegan Soulfest, the world’s first and largest Black vegan festival, co-founder and co-owner of vegan food manufacturer The Greener Kitchen, and founder of Afro-Vegan Society. She is a sought-after public speaker, essayist, and interview guest.
