Today we’re joined by two civil society activists from Peru: chef Karissa Becerra Biaggioni who founded the NGO La Revolucion, which is all about educating children about real food, and Sandra Salcedo who initiated Sobremesa, an initiative led by women in the gastronomy sector to support the SDGs.
We talked to them about retraining children’s taste buds, educating the Ministry of Education, making the industry step up to the plate and malnutrition in the midst of abundant availability of fresh produce.
