Equity At The Table (EATT) Prepping Away at our Tables

Last night, the God’s Love kitchen was abuzz with the sounds of chopping celery, culinary chatter, and forging friendships.  Our friend Julia Turshen brought in eleven food professionals from Equity at the Table (EATT) for a holiday volunteer shift. EATT is a food industry database for women/gender non-conforming individuals, focusing primarily on POC and the LGBTQ community. We tasked them with buckets of soup prep, and they took the challenge on!

Anyone who has volunteered at God’s Love knows that our kitchen’s tables are hot beds for exciting discussions. Last night’s shift was no exception; cookbook authors exchanged ideas with food academics; recipe developers shared chopping boards with food writers, and podcasters showed off their knife skills to food stylists. But no matter their role in the food industry, everyone contributed to the massive prep for our Winter Feast! Over pounds and pounds of celery, currently being cooked into our Corn Chowder, these individuals discussed inclusion (and exclusion) in the hospitality industry, what it’s like to judge cookie competitions, and the complexity of the God’s Love operation.

We’re so grateful for our friendship with Julia Turshen, the best-selling cookbook author, food activist, podcaster and founder of Equity At The Table (EATT) who also used to regularly volunteer with us when she lived in NYC. Julia runs in the Race to Deliver, has featured us on her podcast “Keep Calm and Cook On”, and currently volunteers weekly with a similar organization to God’s Love in the Hudson Valley, Angel Food East.

We’re great admirers of the work that Julia is doing with Equity at the Table and their work to “build a longer table, not a higher fence.” We couldn’t be more on board. Please come back anytime, EATT!
