Shownotes

with guest Hieke Morton of Gathering Markit.

Have you ever heard of a meal kit doing more than offering convenience, but actually changing a life? In this episode, we’re talking about more than just a particularly delicious recipe with its pre-ordered box of fresh ingredients. We’re talking with red seal chef Hieke Morton, who has started a new spin on food banks with Gathering Markit, a non-profit grocery store offering meal kits, a fresh cup of coffee, and a safe place.

Hieke shares how the emotional impact of using a food bank touched her own life and how Gathering Markit is flipping an experience that can be rife with shame and stigma, and turning it into one of warmth and community. Through moving stories of her regular customers, she offers insight into how something as simple a recipe can change a life, the power of small actions to make a difference, and the utmost importance of putting dignity first.
