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.
Julia Turshen uses food as a jumping off point to guide us on our own activist journeys. Her 2017 title Feed the Resistance convened leading voices in America's food justice movement to grow their collective impact. And her new project Equity at the Table aims to give women of color and of the queer community a seat at the table. Today, we explore the social nature of activism, think about privilege in our own activism work, and brainstorm creative ideas to make lunch an activist act!
