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.
This show records and broadcasts LIVE on Full Service Radio from the lobby of the LINE DC in Adams Morgan, Washington DC.
DYK that less than 3% of the tomatoes, potatoes, and blueberries consumed in the Washington, DC area are grown here? The Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments just released a report that is the closest thing we have to a real-time snapshot of farming in the broader DC foodshed. Kiko is the first to interview Lindsay Smith, who coordinated the report as the Council’s Regional Food Systems Program head. We learn further insights about agricultural land use from Chris Van Vlack, a hay farmer and conservationist with the Loudoun Soil and Water Conservation District.
