Event description

Description

At midday in Washington political elites are sitting down to deal-making lunches while DC school kids are lining up for their subsidized meals. What’s getting eaten? And who’s being served?


Power & Lunch is different every time because of who shows up. The audience, performers and experts co-create the show start to finish. That's why we want YOU in the house.

TH JAN 4 @ noon > meet the performers and experts during this fun and messy open rehearsal.

F JAN 5 @ 7:30 pm > Not enough food for everyone? Really? Join Beverley Wheeler of DC Hunger Solutions and Margi Fineran of Food Prints to unpack food insecurity and nutritional literacy.

S JAN 6 @ 2 pm > KIDS SHOW! How do urban farmers help feed the city? Put your imagination to work and learn more from Niraj Ray of Cultivate the City.

S JAN 6 @ 7:30 pm > Re-imagine school lunch. Join Lea Howe of DC Greens to think big about how DC Public School Food and Nutritional Services can improve school meal programs.
