Erik Clemons: Food and Empowering New Haven


Media is loading

Summary Description

At the Connecticut Center for Arts and Technology (ConnCAT), the culinary arts have led to storytelling, job growth, and equitable development for New Haven’s marginalized neighborhoods. Erik Clemons, CEO and founder of ConnCAT, chats with us about what it has taken to address poverty in the city, and how food and health are at the center of this mission. Plus, notes on working together across non-profits, city agencies, and with Yale.

Chewing the Fat is a podcast from the Yale Sustainable Food Program. We cover people making change in the complex world of food and agriculture. We’re home to brilliant minds: activists, academics, chefs, entrepreneurs, farmers, journalists, policymakers, and scientists (to name a few!). Taken together, their work represents a reimagining of mainstream food movements, challenging myths and tropes as well as inspiring new ways of collaborating.
