Add Passion and Stir, No Kid Hungry

Ingredients for Social Change – on Add Passion and Stir

Elise Smith from WinniE’s bakery, and Leslie Crutchfield, author of How Change Happens are two of the most interesting and passionate guests we’ve had on Add Passion and Stir.

Elise, whose cooking is inspired by her grandmother Winnie, is a graduate of Gallaudet University, cooked at our DC No Kid Hungry dinner, and had lobbied on Capitol Hill for us. Leslie, who is now executive director of Georgetown University’s Global Social Enterprise Institute discusses her research on common denominators driving recent successful social movements. “Successful movements turn grassroots gold. They invest in and nurture local leaders… It’s the combination of grassroots and organizations that put all the pieces together so that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts,” and cites Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign as an example.

You can listen at Add Passion and Stir or on iTunes. Enjoy!
