Kimberly Barnes grew up watching the cooking shows with her grandmother. Today, she’s a self-taught food professional on the front lines of food justice. This is a conversation about basic human rights. It’s a conversation about race. And it’s a conversation about taking action. As a self-proclaimed “foodie,” we also lean into lighter conversation and talk about Kimberly’s love for food and her addictive grilled fruit kabobs. If you eat, you need to hear Kimberly’s message. 


What we discuss in this episode:


- The flavors of Southern cuisine and soul food


- How to make grilled fruit kabobs


- The intersection of food and social justice


- Food apartheid and its impact on health


- Kimberly’s Black experience 


- Food activism and policy change


- Kimberly’s current program, Food Love


- Kimberly’s company, Might Be Vegan
