Mama Fresh Connects Chicago Moms With Events And Support With Focus On Diversity

When Jenny LeFlore became a mom, she learned there was plenty to do with her child… if she was willing to drive up to Lincoln Park from her home in Bronzeville. And when she got there, LeFlore often found they were the only people of color at the event.

LeFlore went on to found Mama Fresh, a blog and lifestyle group dedicated to moms — both new and experienced — by creating a community that values diversity-in terms of both people and options for exploring Chicago with your little ones. 

She joins the Morning Shift to talk about the project and to share tips on how to make each day with your child meaningful.
