This week, the food podcast focuses on the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank’s “food justice is social justice” initiative and features Jeremiah’s Place, a crisis nursery in the Pittsburgh area.

“A crisis nursery is essentially an emergency childcare center. Pittsburgh didn’t have one till about 2014 when we opened our doors,” acting director of Jeremiah’s Place Jordan Shoneburger said.

Initially, the organization was created by physicians and childcare professionals who saw a need for temporary childcare in the community.
