Project Description

As we frequently say on Food First, solving hunger starts in the field!

Dr. Phil Knight and Gerry Brisson catch up with Senator Roger Victory​ who took a break from his work on Victory Farms to speak on the show. Senator Victory represents Michigan’s 30th District located in Ottawa County. In this episode of Food First Phil, Gerry, and Senator Victory discuss the tough weather conditions Michigan farmers faced this spring, how infrastructure impacts both agriculture and food banking, and how using data is critically important when addressing the challenge of food insecurity.

A true friend walks in when the rest of the world walks out. Senator Roger Victory has been that kind of friend to the Food Bank Council and to the agricultural community.
