72 Ways Food Can Change the World

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In September, Eater launched a feature exploring 72 ways people are changing the world through food and the food and restaurant industry. It included the voices of farmers, innovators, restaurateurs, chefs, politicians, and scientists. One of the most compelling figures in the piece was Jessamyn Rodriguez, the founder of Hot Bread Kitchen. Her non profit changes the world one life, one business at a time, but it has monumental implications for how we can tackle issues of poverty and nutrition and empowerment while also producing a quality product: bread. Hot Bread Kitchen is a business incubator, training center, and retail and commercial bakery where immigrant men and women learn how to turn their baking skills into solid businesses and careers through which they can support their families. In this conversation, Eater Editor in Chief Amanda Kludt and HBK's Rodriguez will discuss what her non-profit does and how we can apply its lessons to the greater world.
