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.
The first Lunch Agenda series, Groceries for All, explores why, in our nation’s capital, good food still can’t be taken for granted. On Saturday October 14th, hundreds of DC residents walked to downtown Anacostia from the nearest grocery store– a Giant Foods over 2 miles away– ending at a rally calling for city investment in access to healthy food for every resident. In part 1 of the series, Kiko interviews Dominique Hazzard of DC Greens, who planned the march.
