Appetite for Change is grounded around the notion that food can be used to create health, wealth and social change. One of the biggest discoveries of the women and men who gather in the basement kitchen of a Harrison neighborhood church, however, has been how food is a catalyst for dialogue. The busy cooking seems to dismantle barriers and reservations, and the community opens up its thoughts, concerns and stories around cutting boards and stoves.
Shayna and Phyllis embody donor activism in the fullest sense. They make things happen through strategic philanthropy, daily engagement in community work, seeking creative solutions to societal problems and inspiring and challenging others to invest their talents, energy and financial resources in working for justice.
