Brahm Ahmadi is an advocate and social entrepreneur working to build healthier and more equitable inner city communities through solutions shaped by the history, knowledge and cultures of those diverse communities. With a background in the environmental justice movement, Brahm has, for the last ten years, focused his work on creating meaningful change and innovation to critical facets of the food system that directly impact low-income urban communities.
