Hunger in North America with Ben Perkins, Leanne Brown, and Mark Winne
In this episode of Eat, Drink, Think we’re digging into the important issue of Hunger. Unfortunately, it’s more timely than ever. Last year saw the first uptick in food insecurity in America in years because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our guests are:
Ben Perkins, CEO of Wholesome Wave, a national nonprofit working to increase access to healthy food for all. Before joining Wholesome Wave, Ben held leadership roles with the American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association. He’s also an ordained minister with a master’s degree from Harvard Divinity School.
Leanne Brown, author of the cookbook Good & Cheap: Eat Well on $4 a Day. The book began as her Master’s thesis project in food studies at NYU. She wrote it to help people on a tight budget, especially SNAP recipients. She has always offered the book as a free PDF and it’s been downloaded more than 15 million times.
Mark Winne is a food activist who’s worked on issues related to hunger and nutrition for 50 years. He’s an author and a Senior Advisor to the Food Policy Networks Project at the Johns Hopkins University Center for a Livable Future. His most recent book, Food Town USA, explores seven often-overlooked American cities that are now leading the food movement.
Sustainable Beef with Panorama Organic Meats and the National Audubon Society
Today I'm talking with Kay Cornelius, a fourth generation rancher and the new general manager at Panorama Organic as well as Marshall Johnson, vice president of Audubon's conservation ranching initiative. And before you go shopping for your sustainable grass fed beef, you'll definitely want to hear my conversation with Marilyn Noble, a food writer and recipe developer with special expertise in cooking grass fed beef. But first, Kay's here to talk birds, beef, and what it's like to be a woman in the male dominated business of meat.
Eat beef and save the birds? Who knew!
Fascinating episode about how the National Audubon Society has partnered with grass-fed beef ranches (millions of acres) to certify them as bird-friendly to help save imperiled grassland bird species. So it’s true, eat beef and help save the birds!
Great show for those interested in a variety of food topics!
Perfect snack-sized podcast that offers a wide range of intriguing food discussions. Always learn something new and interesting--just like trying different flavors at its namesake potluck!
Who knew food was this fascinating!?
Most of us savor a good meal—or something as small as a ripe blueberry—without giving much thought to the backstory. That makes Edible Potluck a real eye opener: a brisk, behind-the-scenes look at the who produces our food and how it gets to our tables. That process is a microcosm of both everything that ails us and the promise that innovation, passion, and activism can triumph. The stories are rich, the recipes are delicious, and the experience is totally rewarding.
