METROFOCUS: APRIL 23, 2019

April 24, 2019 at 5:30 am

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, tonight we shine a light on this problem, expose how wide spread it is in our area, and what is being done to protect the innocent. Climate change and its effect on our local wildlife is causing concern and producing some unexpected success stories.  The Nature Conservancy’s Bill Ulfelder has the details. Food: nutritious, fresh, necessary, and hard to come by right here in the metro area.  A look at so-called “food deserts” and City Harvest’s fight against them. The National Dance Institute of New York offers inner city kids a chance of being creative and free while developing the full mind. You don’t want to miss it!

Aired on April 23, 2019.
