Even though the Heartland supplies a large chunk of the nation's food, many Kansas Citians are still going hungry. On this episode, we dive into a conversation on how to address the food deserts in Kansas City.

As a host and contributor at KCUR, I seek to create a more informed citizenry and richer community. I want to enlighten and inspire our audience by delivering the information they need with accuracy and urgency, clarifying what’s complicated and teasing out the complexities of what seems simple. I work to craft conversations that reveal realities in our midst and model civil discourse in a divided world. Follow me on Twitter @ptsbrian or email me at brian@kcur.org.
