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.
Though Wards 7 and 8 are home to over 150,000 DC residents, there are only three grocery stores open in these neighborhoods, causing a food access issue that must be addressed. This episode marks the first guest host spot on Lunch Agenda. Join Alexya in discussion with Clarice Manning and Raul Edwards, board members of the upcoming Community Grocery Co-op to be located east of the river. Through the Co-op, they hope to not only provide affordable, healthy foods to residents but to also uplift the community's voice and build bonds. Learn all about the history of cooperative business and about what food access really means in this episode!
