More Than Just Free Lunch

hosted by: Jessica Pfeiffer & Steve Graner

About our guest:

In today’s episode we sit down and connect with Tu David Phu. Chef Tu shares his personal story about why understanding the connection between schools and food matters. When you have consistent access to food that provides nourishment it’s easy to minimize just how important it is for learning. Chef Tu reminds us that the playing field is not equal and we must advocate for free access to healthy foods for all students at school. 

Top Chef Alumnus, Tu David Phu, is a Vietnamese-American, SF Chronicle Rising Star Chef, Author, and an Emmy-nominated filmmaker from Oakland. His extensive resume reflects a wide range of exciting experiences ranging from cooking with incarcerated men in San Quentin prison; to cutting his culinary teeth in the kitchens of some of the nation’s top restaurants.
