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.
We're in the middle of a national dairy crisis, with failing economics of the traditional small dairy farm coupled with the rise of factory mega-farms. So the time is right to look at how a BIG dairy company can do things differently. Melissa "Missy" Hughes, Organic Valley's Chief Mission Officer and General Counsel, comes on Lunch Agenda to school us on the company's co-op model, what's going on with America's dairy industry, and the impact we can have through our choice in the milk aisle.
