Rev. Heber Brown is a Baltimore pastor sparking a movement with his Black Church Security Network, an initiative he started after seeking to do "something beyond prayer" to support his community members wrestling with health and diet issues. Rev. Brown is engaging churches in planting fresh produce on their own land as well as connecting them to black farmers, ultimately seeking to position churches to further equity in the food system. Listen to Rev. Brown discuss the genesis and growth of the initiative in this Baltimore Sun podcast.
