Lunch Agenda is a virtual lunch date that offers us all a chance to be food activists. Kiko spent three years interviewing neighbors served by the Capital Area Food Bank about how they like to eat. She’s learned that in order for everyone in America to eat better, we need to listen to different perspectives from our own and pursue change on many levels. She’ll sit with doctors, parents, policymakers and more to hear their agenda for the food system, and will ask each guest for one action listeners can take to change things for the better.
We’re nearing the end of February and Black History Month, but there are 10 months left this year to mark the 400th anniversary of the first enslaved Africans landing on American soil. Kiko talks with Tambra Raye Stevenson, the DC-based food educator and founder of NativSol Kitchen and WANDA: Women Advancing Nutrition Dietetics and Agriculture, about creative ways to honor the milestone. We preview the workshop we'll offer at Rooting DC this Saturday 2/23, and explore how to teach black food history without being “Tone Deaf as F%$k".
