Dan Stanford: Food As the Great Equalizer

Episode 013 Dan EPISODE ART.jpg

“We are nourishing our temples at the same time with the same thing - and that’s what’s makes food an equalizer and brings us together regardless of what socioeconomic status we have or what we’re going through and that’s what connects us.”

“When we sit down at the table, we are one.”

Musician, artist and social justice activist Dan Stanford reflects on how his family’s relationship to meal time shaped his current thinking about food, as well as how sharing a meal with someone and sitting at the table eye to eye with others provides equalization in a world of social imbalances.
