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.
This show records and broadcasts LIVE on Full Service Radio from the lobby of the LINE DC in Adams Morgan, Washington DC.
This week marks the beginning of Black History Month, and this year marks the 400th anniversary of the transatlantic slave trade beginning in the United States. In that spirit, Kiko kicks off a new Lunch Agenda series in conversation with Michael Twitty, a black culinary historian, food writer, and author of the James Beard Foundation’s 2018 Book of the Year, The Cooking Gene. She'll ask him to school her on foods and traditions that travelled across the Atlantic from Africa, evolved along with the African American community since, and have shaped the food experiences of us all.
