Play • 33 min

Kyle Tsukahira is the Co-Director of Asian Pacific Islander Forward Movement (APIFM) based in Los Angeles, CA. In this episode, Kyle shares his journey into food justice work, starting with a memory of foods that remind him of home. Kyle tells us about his lineage and the ancestors that brought agricultural practices from the East and adapted them in western soil, passing down knowledge from one generation to the next. Through their Food Roots program, APIFM partners with local Asian American farmers and other farmers of color growing culturally relevant food, and supports food distribution to local businesses and communities. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Food Roots program has worked to provide over 180,000 lbs of fresh produce and over 150,000 eggs to thousands of families in need across Los Angeles County.
