Healthy Food for Communities

Union Presbyterian Seminary's most recent podcast addresses ways to expand access to healthy food: Shalom Farms at Union

Its executive director Dominic Barrett sat down with our alumnus Nelson Reveley to explain his vision for Shalom Farms at Union Seminary and why it matters. [Listen Here].
