Alot has been written about Elon Musk, and I’d be the first to admit to being a very big admirerer for his hinsight and search for a better option, not settling with just adapting what has been the same for 150 years. But I hadn’t come around his articles on his brother other than the ones where he was merely mentioned as “Elon’s brother” until I came across this: The Kitchen Community.
“My goal is to go community by community and help improve the food culture, and get it to a place where we have a healthier society” – Kimbal Musk
Elon Musk’s brother Kimbal Musk just became somewhat a hero himself (in my mind), and has been for some years.
He started The Kitchen Community back in 2011 to positively affect the way we eat and enhance education about food. By creating community kitchens and gatherings, bringing people together over good, proper food, making it possible to set up learning kitchens, in order to educate especially children where food actually comes from, and that guacamole is actually not something that grows in nature.
Today, they are affecting 125.000 kids across the US – a day. There are more than 240 learning gardens integrated into different communities, schools etc. They have now even set up a program for teachers to go through to be suited to educate children in food and nutrition.
I know a lot of people are doing it, and yes, I came across it because Kimbal is Elon’s brother but hey, it’s still amazing work being done by private people. This is unfortunately neccessary as the US government is too reliant on the sponsoring and ties to the sugar and processed food industry. So let’s fight them with knowledge.
