Food plays a central role in our lives — from the health of people and the environment to a child’s educational achievement. Every Wednesday, “Add Passion and Stir” explores the role of food in society by convening leaders from the worlds of food, education, policy, government, and beyond committed to ensuring everyone has access to the food they need. “Add Passion and Stir” is hosted by Share Our Strength’s founder Billy Shore, a leading advocate in food justice for 40 years. Join us for conversations about food, justice and how we can share our strength to help end hunger. Follow us on Twitter @AddPassionStir and Instagram @billshore and like us on Facebook.
