Right Frederick in. So I guess to put an even more simpler context about two percent of GDP is on wasted food for that's a lot of money spent on food that never gets eaten in this country does Like many people I have some passing familiarity with this I. Read about it I don't even know where to start and it seems like maybe you go out and you you know you try to donate food as best you can and and I think that's maybe where you started. Yeah and it transformed into something quite extraordinary. So yeah if you know Josh I started feeding people that were experiencing hunger and homelessness in two thousand thirteen out of my apartment in Atlanta Georgia So that's where got started I found a parking. Lot I drove past it one day and I just saw hundreds of people that were homeless in in something kind of just pulled on my heartstrings at that moment and I said I wanNA help you know what do I didn't have a ton of money and I knew I could cook and so I just went home I post it on facebook I mean Sunday. I'm going to go downtown and I'm going to feed on the streets. If. You want to join me I had about twenty volunteers I made a spaghetti dinner. And loved it. You know brought out my little beats pill at the time, which wasn't that loud outside. Dating us, you're dating we know exactly when you're store your. Heckling when it happened so I really wasn't that loud music thing. But I have bad and you know the idea was it would be old school kind of Sunday music why Jackson five and Aretha Franklin James Brown like this classic kind of music and a good Sunday dinner, and that's how it all got started in. So of eighty own from one of my pop up restaurants went viral on facebook and people are saying this is so amazing which restaurants donate the food and the reality was nobody I was couponing on price matching I always say, I'm the reason Walmart doesn't price-match anymore I definitely feel like i. gave them a run for him. And then I was cooking thing taking it downtown, serving it coming home cleaning up, and so it would take me like forty hours every week I did this and I started researching food ways and was really like upset like I can't believe this much food goes to waste in here I. Am you know putting together five dollar donations and my own money and trying to make these feeding is happening to feed five hundred people

"Many many many decades, Melania. And what happens is as you shift in a lot of people in like. Various groups like Kito in in other. I'm trying to think of. The train from a few years ago, people started going back to sort of like pre nineteen ten industrialized food. What's what's the what's the? You People are starting to understand it a little bit more, but. Industrialized sort of homogeneous homogenize. Food is really hurting a lot of communities that have immigrated here. Over the past few hundred years even over the past twenty years. And so we look at some of the communities, such as Gucci Culture of South Carolina, and how they were cooking foods a especially. A high number of plant. recipes that they use to treat common diseases in the community and. The more you really research. The history of food. During Slavery impre- slavery, the more you'll find that Atkins. Diet in black diets now I in in the chronic disease, levels fare much better with plant based diets and I. Think what really bothered me at the beginning of the month. Is that you you see? Food leaders clan-based leaders. In I don't want to call anyone out, but they're like. They're post only thin four or five times a day. And they can talk about like. Why dogs need plant based Food and Mike why? We're ruining farmland. Somehow. They became in like three months. Experts on. The environment for they cannot discuss how much food affects. Thirteen percent, or even if you think about milk, sixty percent of the population in the United Sates. and. I think it's to continue the conversation in you know companies like nine in for in even my voice to be out there and really discuss how much we need to think in I, said this bog like we need to think beyond plant based nuggets and really serve like. Tens of millions of people. Correctly, and in sort of reverse the adverse effects. Of the lack of plant based. In historical food ways considerations. For for Black Americans. You you talk about. Getting your voice out, there I'd like to talk about just generally. Tech in food innovation as an industry. I mean we do have some really great entrepreneurs in Lisa dyson with with air protein. You have jasmine crow with gooder. Some great black women entrepreneurs like yourself, but I think there's probably a lot more we can do. Can you talk about where you think? We are as an industry in terms of food innovation? And how we can maybe. Even more welcoming to bring more voices into the conversation. I was having a conversation with group last week about this. and. One thing that we brought up and one thing that I brought up in one thing. I feel all the time I mean. I speak at conferences. Quite regularly I'm tip. I'm typically like the only black woman on stage. In, there could be two hundred speakers. Right, so it's like we need to get more founder and there I mean. There's not as many who tech. Black founded, there will continue to be as they're more inspired and creative, but there there's a ton of CPG. founders that are women and wore black or next right in. We need to make sure that we're creating. The communities in the affinity groups in the larger. Community so.

"A young's like every American needs two thousand dollars right now yesterday. I get it to them. I don't know how does get into love to see it. I hate that. It came to this to make the point. Could you imagine like ten or twelve years ago? It'd be like listen. Any of this Mitt Romney is is going to outflank the Republican Party. Ten years ago. Being like okay. So trump's president. You're like hold on backup. It gets worse. Put Him on the fucking iceberg. He gets so much. Let's talk about the time line. We gotta it's so Onkar so so that's good news that I feel like a lot of people are waking up to the huge inequalities in is a system how all of us are operating on razor thin budgets. How Y- that's another good point is that it didn't take much push us on a global scale every country every every part of society whether it's wealthy people You know I think about you. Know artists spend all their time on the road and they make a ton of money. What happens when they're suddenly off the road? No and this is what happens when you concentrate. Wealth in the hands of so few people all of. And that's what we've been doing steadily since the late seventy s and eighty s and you know all the chickens are coming home to roost right now. The virus isn't causing this problem. It's showing us by highland. The problem that already exists. So hopefully you know this really kind of does away with some of the Partisanship on this issue. Waking people up to the fact that that there aren't too realities there's one reality and guys as we know it's not a podcast if I don't talk about having worked in a grocery store now is the time where people are. Finally starting to fucking appreciate. You have been on it on twitter. I'll say that I I keep refreshing our notifications and I'll see you yelling one grocery store and refreshed it again. You don't another grocery store about paying their employees. Yeah she's going. Everybody got do not give a fuck if anything you comes from. Us having a bigger platform. It's I want to fight for the people that I know that I came up with whose lives I understand. That's my friends and family of the grocery stores. I still have so many friends who still work at grocery stores and it's this is a really hard time for all of them right now They also like the rest of us. Don't have savings have razor-thin budgets. So they have to keep showing up for work and you know we need them to showing up from work but a lot of these companies like as of this recording kroger is an offering paid sick. Leave the fucking mackey. The CEO of whole foods told employees to donate their PTO. There Hi mom hours or more hours because they don't get sick leave donated to other employees who gets second. It's like these are companies that have seen record profits wholefoods is owned by the richest man in the world. E shut the fuck up there. You'RE GONNA ask your your employees are making twelve to fifteen dollars an hour to help each other out. You help them out. And that's that's the arrangement as a large business owner especially one of a grocery store. That is the arrangement they have given you their life. They're they're putting their health on the line. They're poking their wellness on the line. They're doing all of this stuff for you. You've been making money hand over fast. And so when they need you you need to show the fuck up but the so. This is something that was kind of touched on earlier. Is that like? I don't understand like I get most of us. I mean you and I very fortunate not anymore but our entire lives before we we you know did what we do now. Living paycheck to paycheck which is thin margins razor thin margins no room for error like if I get a flat tire. That's going to affect how I pay rent and the rest of the. Bill's cut my hours from forty to thirty two right but I was fought okay so like that. It has always been in. The back of my mind has always been a problem. The thing that I can't wrap my fucking head around is companies like Boeing. Yes that have been doing so well for so long and yet they make the seat space smaller so they can fly more passengers charges for every God damn charges were every fucking thing Costs have gone up. I I know just from people that you and I both know that. They're not paying their pilots. Accordingly they're not ping that all changed after the recession like they aren't paying pilots sees you know unless you've been there thirty years forty years like starting out like you're not making much money anymore and you have no retirement. You HAVE NO SAVINGS ACCOUNT. You have none of these things like these. These companies have like you said have been making so much fucking money for generations and I do not like if I hear someone say too big to fail. You're getting punched in the face because if you're too big to fail you shouldn't exist. Yeah no that's not. What capital capitalism is a free market? Meaning that if you cannot stand on your own as a product or company you should not exist. And if you're bailing out companies how was it the one that's been making millions and millions of dollars in silver generations and it's not the restaurant in our neighborhood needs are fucking help. They're the ones who we shouldn't expect to have savings yet. We're expecting them to keep playing their employees and all these things and so many of them are God. Bless than they are trying their best to pay everyone. Who's on their staff so fuck q? American Airlines and fuck you. Del Massive massive companies. That are like Oh. We're like three weeks out from bankruptcy bankruptcy. Yeah you told me you gotTA listen a month of financial runway. Yeah who the fuck is running this multibillion dollar company no exactly so fuck? Y'All let's positive note here because there's so many people really really amazing things right now. Yeah absolutely I mean You know chef. Jose Andres like he's all over twitter. You know he World Central Kitchen is is his nonprofit. They're doing tons of work. I think they were in New York today. Because New York is Under essentially quarantine and they were giving out meals to people. I mean they`re. They're meeting all of our first responders and people on the frontlines there in all the hospitals who really need just any amount of pressure lifted off them that we can. I like chef. Jose Megan his point about following health official guidelines. Because he's been rocking that Santa Beard and he shaved off shaved it CDC guidelines. Yeah no facial hair. He's like listen. I can look sexy later. Shot up to him show Jasmine Crow and the whole team. Sure we had her on the pot a while back. And if you guys don't remember she's the young woman who has been feeding the most vulnerable people experiencing homelessness kids who live in food insecurity by taking foods from both restaurants and plate like catering gigs all that extra food. That companies have they throw away. She takes that redistributes it and right now she has been doing amazing work at Atlanta helping to feed all the kids who depend on meals From their school since the school district's are shutting down. She's feeding America Workers Seniors She just went to a senior Hamas Fed one hundred twenty seven people of making sure that all the most vulnerable people have food. So you guys follow. The Gutter Team Has G. O. D. R. E. They're doing amazing work and If Jasmine asks for any help any money she is the person to give it to you because she takes care of everybody who crosses her path and there is. There's not a bigger heart out there. I kind of on a lighter note like did you see little Isaacs Yuppie cash APP. Help you pay your bills and like you know. He's a young dude any success when he's doing all right but it's so refreshing to see somebody who's coming into celebrity and coming into money being like. I'm not that far removed Yeah Megan. These stallion did the same town. Baby making these stallion. Yeah it's so especially because like you're saying they're kind of new to fame. They're new to having a ton of money so they were member totally and they're trying to help and they know that. And you know like very much like you and I know you know. I know we're much smaller than either. Yeah we know that we don't exist without the people who support us. Yeah and it's it's no fun to celebrate your success and doing well when you know the whole world is hurting. The thought that was really refreshing to see on twitter. Yeah and do you know if you guys are just looking for relief from all this? Goddamn fucking news Follow cooks like Tara Johnson who we had on the pot awhile back from smoke signals bakery. She's at Baker hands on instagram. And she's showing how to make sourdot from scratch. She's cultivating the starter right now. She's doing from the bottoms. If you've always wanted to make bread at home she's a great follow. So is Angela Davis. She's she's she's churning out the rest we for Tiger beautiful and she does like the step-by-step photography on a lot of her recipes. And her evokes if you're looking for Angela Davis Think you're handles the kitchen or the kitchen Easter diarrheas but down her she has. I think three E. books for socio bundle of like fifteen bucks for the e books. They're gorgeous tons of new recipes for you. Guys try at home and she is so accessible on social media particularly twitter that you can get cooking questions right tour. Speaking of which Tom coleco answering questions cooking questions very active or no. He's all over guys in. He'll help you figure out what the fuck to make for dinner like. He's cool shit on twitter so check him out to what else man. Yeah I mean like you were saying earlier in the show. This isn't something that I don't want this to become a corona virus pocket. Yeah I think this is probably the most will talk about it unless some sort of other new big breaking news happens. Which hopefully fucking guys we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA get this out of the way. We'll probably talk briefly about next week but we got some really silly shit planned for next week. Yeah we're GONNA keep it going guys. We WE WANNA keep all entertained. We're trying to maintain a schedule ourselves. You know I think that Some of the healthiest things. You can do right now like we were saying at the top. Show a cook for Yourself. Try to mean some sort of routine. Yeah right on schedule for yourself like you have plans for six to six to eight like I'm having dinner and then at this time I'm going to go to bed even if you don't stick to the schedule you still down the road a fucking schedule. Yeah you know like when you wake up on like even if you're not leaving the house it's like change your clothes but I think that we can use this as a opportunity to learn something you know. Let's show some gratitude to all those who don't have the privilege staying home right now. Yes you're cooped up at home you're feeling stir crazy. What a blessing. And there's a lot of people's jobs right now that they're entire job in the last couple of weeks has suddenly transformed into making sure that the rest of us are safe and fed. And that's not going away anytime soon So you know people like the United Farm. Workers Field workers all the medical professionals. From nurses. Two doctors.

"What we are consuming so that what's on the label is actually what's in the food, and they aren't they aren't mislabeling things, and and and miss. Guiding the community but one thing I do want to point out when it comes to fruit one one topic we can talk about now when. When it comes, to fruit and vegetables when you go into the grocery store their appeal you codes so I, want everyone to start paying attention to the, fruit sources that they get and look at the numbers on those on those particular fruits so, for example a five digit. Number that starts with the number nine actually means that the product is. Organic and a lot of individuals don't know that but afford digit code beginning with, a three or four typically means that it was conventionally grown but a five digit code Oh that begins with an. Eight means that it's been genetically modified so without understanding what you're looking at you, won't know what you're doing when you go grocery shopping so. Just for the record when you go grocery shopping organic is nine anything, that starts with the Niners organic anything that begins with an eight has been genetically modified into doctor but. I want I want you to hop in on this because. One well we're having the discussion on the dietary aspect of it it is. So hard in America to try to eat healthy try to eat Niro natural healthy food, basically if you're not cooking it at, home then is you. Know you can't be out and about and getting the healthy and then even if you're cooking get at home you never know most of the. Time even if, it says organic nature getting what's good and natural four years something that hasn't been pumped full, of so many even the fruits and vegetable, pump full somebody nitrogen fertilizers that making the tomato basil football then it's gonna make you the, size of a football too For me, and my wife. We, have a garden in the backyard and, we've done, organic gardening, for the last four years to grow our fruits and. Vegetables you know who does organic gardening knows a, struggle you gotta bring in all this manure and everything is Tom Kasumi got hill the earth you got to, rotate your crops that are not in the same. Pot year after year they'll suck the nutrients, out you got to build the soil over, the win all that stuff so this year I was like Put some fertilizer and let me see what I look, I went one away for we, came back my backyard like a jungle, because everything was growing so fast so big so how can we how can we get. The foods, that are pumped full of so many. Chemicals into our diet into wonderful wonderful question and I'll start by saying this as as. We've created lumberjack industries we have decided to focus on cash crops and these cash crops, go from industrial hemp all. The way down to you know fruits and vegetables that that Dr. Bryant was was alluding to but There's a lot, of grassroots efforts going on around the city one of them is at Douglas high school and there's a group at Douglass high school which is teaching, kids how to create and grow crops we know especially in the south west. Side of Atlanta we we operate in. Moving food desert they're not that. Many we were at. At in college there weren't that many grocery stores that were giving. Their community good hold products that were coming out the ground fresh and so what they've done over at, at Douglas. High school is credit, hydroponics program in anybody if we with hydroponics it's basically using the nutrients that is already in the soil, and recreate. That in artificial says without having to devote a lot of ground, upkeeping manure you can literally extract those those real minerals and grow plants and grow vegetables, so that's what they're doing, over there, so that's one thing in second there's there there there there's, a A company that I I used to work with with cop called gooder GO by young lady named jasmine crow check our platform, out she's rescued food and. She's feeding a lot of communities and she's doing it on. Organic level so there to to Mr. bean, point there tons of things going out here on on the but we don't know about it because. We exist in silos is important for our community to, start, coming together bringing all of these. Wonderful solutions and building our own systems whether it be..
