May 18th is Endangered Species Day! We listen to and discuss a presentation by Mic the Vegan on how animal agriculture is a major driver of species extinction.

JoVonna Johnson-Cooke

Our featured guest is JoVonna Johnson-Cooke, a veganic farmer, vegan chef, and food justice activist based in Atlanta. JoVonna is the co-founder and owner of MaituFoods, a vegan meal delivery service and food justice project, and Grow Where You Are, a veganic farming collective that helps train aspiring urban farmers.

Since 2008, MaituFoods has served more than 2,000 vegan school lunches to children through their subsidized vegan lunch program, and Grow Where You Are has transformed numerous urban spaces in Atlanta by establishing community food gardens and vegetable farms.

In this interview, JoVonna elaborates on her philosophy and all the incredible work she does, and shares advice for how everyday people can work toward achieving food justice for all.
