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.
Want to get inside the head of people who invest in food concepts? In partnership with the Bainum Family Foundation, Kiko kicks off a special series all about the who, why and how of food investment. Today’s guests--Eric Kessler of Arabella Advisors, Leila Otis of the Bainum Family Foundation, and Celeste James who leads Kaiser Permanente’s Community Health Philanthrophy in the Mid-Atlantic region--help us understand the different types of food funding that exist in 2019, and give us a window into how funders make their decisions.
