Say hello to Smart Food, the new podcast hosted by Jane Black. Our inaugural guest is Michel Nischan.
Michel is well-known as a chef. He's cooked for 30 years at four-star restaurants in New York and elsewhere and now owns Dressing Room in Westport Connecticut. But he's becoming increasingly recognized for his work as a good-food advocate. He is the CEO of Wholesome Wave, a non profit that works to bring fresh fruits and vegetables to low-income communities and create new markets for small and medium-sized farmers.
In today's program, Michel and I talk about Wholesome Wave's signature double-voucher program, which allows recipients of food stamps and other food assistance to double their money when they buy food at farmers markets, plus a new, innovative pilot that allows doctors to prescribe fresh fruits and vegetables to families. Michel explains how he hopes to create a model for states and the federal government to bring better food to people at more affordable prices.
