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.
Katherine Miller, Senior Director of Food Policy Advocacy for the James Beard Foundation, trains chefs on how to advocate for the change they want to see in American food. On Lunch Agenda's second Food Policy Class, she gives us a behind-the-scenes look at work being done by the people who make our most special meals: chefs! Amy Brandwein, the chef and owner of DC's Centrolina, discusses how she votes with the $1 million she spends on food each year and relationships she's built with congress people. Her progress shows us that no matter where we sit (or stand) in the restaurant, we can all take small actions toward important change.
