Listen as our co-founder, Matthias Merges, and Executive Director, Alex DeSorbo-Quinn, join Ji Suk Yi’s radio program to discuss Pilot Light and Family Meal. The show originally aired on Thursday, April 16th.
In addition to explaining the history and mission of Pilot Light, Matthias and Alex introduced Family Meal, our new distance learning program designed to support teachers, families, and youth during this time. Through Family Meal, Pilot Light is providing out-of-work hospitality workers with stipends to develop short videos and recipes and working with teachers to create standards-aligned family lessons.
Lessons and recipes are designed to support families with limited food access and are informed by ongoing feedback from our community. With Family Meal, Pilot Light is able to fulfill two goals: to better serve families and to give back to the restaurant community.
