Sharlana Turner


Sharlana Turner born in Oakland and raised in Berkeley is one of 7 kids and is a self-proclaimed Granny's baby who grew up loving food like cheese-its and 7-up cake... yum! However, she grew up with high blood pressure which ran in the family. After her Granny Maya Turner died in 2008 of heart disease, Sharlana decided to become an advocate and educate the community about our food system by getting involved with the food justice movement. In her work to address health disparities in her community she co-launched Farm Fresh Catering.
