In this episode we speak with Robert Egger, an original
nonprofit kale raiser. He has started multiple nonprofits in his
career, including DC
Central Kitchen and LA Kitchen. He flips the script on what
solving hunger looks like. His work is responsible for feeding
seniors, giving jobs to the homeless, and training the formerly
incarcerated–all in an effort to improve our food system. He
describes a visit from President Obama, where formerly
incarcerated culinary trainees were giving the President
instructions in the kitchen.
