Heartland Stories

Heartland Stories is a weekly 29-minute radio show hosted by good food pioneer Theresa Marquez.  Each show, meet a new voice from the diverse activists and professionals on the road to change food, farming and public health. Doctors, researchers, farmers and farm workers, educators, chefs, students, moms and dads and sometimes just passionate eaters, are given a voice to talk about the problems AND the solutions.  Solid information about what we all can do to assure a healthy and a just food system for the 21st century needs to come from a diverse set of voices. Heartland Stories aims to move minds and hearts toward a food culture that improves our quality of life and protects our children.  We will hear from experts on why are more children becoming obese? Why is autism increasing? Where did childhood cancer come from? What happened when I was a baby that is impacting me now? Why is social justice such an important food issue?

“As a dedicated organic marketing professional, I have dedicated my 40-year career to protecting family farmers and facing our health crisis through a culture of healthy food,” says Marquez.  “I am inspired and dedicated to learn from professionals, using science to understand our problems - but sometimes the best common sense and inspiration comes from people on the ground daily facing problems and finding solutions that are often fun and creative. Our food system needs to change and my guests from all walks of life have that goal in common.”

Heartland Stories are brought to you by the Heartland Study, a Midwest based research program dedicated to supporting children’s health in the Heartland. You can find more at www.heartlandstudy.org.
