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.
What makes flour "whole" and why does that matter for our health? Kiko talks with Heinz Thomet, a Maryland farmer who grows and mills wheat, rye and other grains. We also hear from David Killilea, PhD about the research he's leading in Oakland on the nutritional content of flour sold at supermarkets.
