Oluwaseun's Video story 1
The Main Challenge:
One of the challenges that were mentioned in some of the videos was that there was a bunch of vacant yards in Frogtown that they did not know what to do with. The other problem was that there was a social divide between people in the neighborhood which led to people not really knowing much about the people in their community.
Here are some videos explaining the impact of the Community Dinner at Frogtown that I found interesting:
I realized the system that Frogtown has to distribute good healthy food very interesting.
I really how having the gardens in the town helps to build the community so that people can be more comfortable around each other. I also find it very creative that they are using the vacant yards to good uses in order to help distribute healthy food across the community.
I found the way that she introduced herself at the event really unique and how she talks about how she incorporates different cultures into the dishes she makes.
Another story that I found interesting was from Colleen Sheehy.
I really like how she went into depth about the activities and opportunities that FreshLo has in the community of Frogtown.
How the problem was addressed:
The community found a use for those empty yards and turned them into community gardens so that everyone could have equal access to healthy food. They also made it easier for people to talk to other people in the community and learn about their life by creating a community meal.
Delina's first video story
My first video story is from the community meal that was on November 2016 at AEDA's office.
- Those videos are from AEDA's 2016 Community Meal, via the St. Paul Almanac Storymobile, November 16, 2016, as part of the Art of Food in Frogtown and Rondo project (funded by the Kresge Fresh, Local and Equitable program)
- The Second Art of Food Community meal. The meal was a family style dinner that focused on guests sharing connections among food, culture, family and tradition around tables.
- The main objective of the event: People and organizations came together to explore ways their organizations and communities could creatively cultivate a stronger community food system. And finding ways to provide fresh vegetables and fresh greens for the community.
This video talks about the partners involved in the community meal and a short dance that shows the power food has in a family.
Gives a description of the community meal and the event.

A group from the climate change crew were also there to get some feedbacks and talk to the community about the app they created which tracks healthy food access in Frogtown.
