After that, Katherine Kennedy and Nichole Fields-Kyle of Concrete Jungle, which distributes neglected fruits & vegetable to those in need and grocery deliveries to the medically vulnerable during the pandemic.
We’re thrilled to share their work; we also discuss two opportunities to connect with these organizations:
