    Presenting: The Big Food Question

    Presenting: The Big Food Question

    This week, we're presenting the third episode of HRN's newest show: The Big Food Question.

    How can our food system rebuild and reimagine amid the unprecedented crisis of COVID-19 and a long overdue reckoning with generations of inequity? As every corner of the food world grapples with issues that will define its future, The Big Food Question will tackle practical and philosophical questions alike for eaters, operators, and workers across food business sectors and topics. From restaurants and bars, to processors and distributors, from farms to food banks, The Big Food Question will feature expert guests who help us understand how industries can move forward while prioritizing safety, equity, and economic stability.

    In this episode Sother Teague shares his detailed playbook for re-opening his East Village bar with indoor seating when the time comes. He expects he will only be allowed 8 guests at a time - less than half his normal capacity. Taking into consideration capital, staffing and safety he has laid out a reservation system that he believes will decrease points of contact, provide enough revenue to stay afloat, and establish high hygiene standards. The question remains however, when he will set the plan into motion. Sother also recommends viewing the resources available at www.barmagic.com/relief.
