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.
As Administrative Assistants, Sheila Gilbert and Shannon Bailey have set the staff culture at the food nonprofits where they've worked. Beyond that, they have literally sat on the front lines of the Washington area’s fight against hunger. The second episode in Lunch Agenda's "Food Admin" series shines a light on administrative assistants as a service corollary to those who serve us in restaurants.
