With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we talk food this week. Emily Hays and Elliott Robinson discuss redevelopment of the city’s affordable housing and the community gardens run by their residents. Plus, we talk to local chef and entrepreneur Antwon Brinson about the art of making food for people and his culinary and life skills training program.

Emily Hays grew up in Charlottesville and graduated from Yale in 2016. She covered growth, development, and affordable living. Before writing for Charlottesville Tomorrow, she produced a podcast on education and caste in Maharashtra, India.

Elliott Robinson has spent nearly 15 years in journalism and joined Charlottesville Tomorrow as its news editor in August 2018 through 2021. He is a graduate of Christopher Newport University.
