Project Description

A chain is only as strong as its weakest link

We have two strong links that are standing in the gap for others on this week’s show – Governor Elect Gretchen Whitmer and Duane Berger, Director of Business and Innovation at Kinexus.

Gretchen’s segment was recorded before the primary’s and she was already determined get behind the mission of creating a food secure state. Recently she released her Health Plan stating that there would be strong food policy coordination as well as a Director of food security – this is great news!

Duane is using his one handful of life to help create a better life for others. Kinexus’ We is compiled of agents who create solutions for business, workforce, and community challenges to promote economic vitality in the southwest Michigan region. Duane and his team partnered with Feeding America West Michigan for mobile distribution pantries to be sent to their member companies on a regular basis – by doing so, food barriers dropped down to a ‘5’ in terms of stressors.
