It's Alive with Brad Leone is back for episode 79 and this time Brad is volunteering at Food Bank for New York City in Harlem. Brad is joined by Chef Sheri Jefferson, the culinary manager in the community kitchen, where they cook one thousand meals a day. That's right, one thousand meals in one day. After a day of volunteering, they head back to the studio kitchen so Chef Sheri can show Brad just how they pull off this feat.
Learn more about Food Bank for New York City here: www.foodbanknyc.org

Follow Brad on Instagram: @brad_leone

Join Bon Appétit test kitchen guy, Brad Leone, on a wild, roundabout and marginally scientific adventure exploring fermented foods and more. From cultured butter and kombucha, to kimchi and miso, to beer and tepache, learn how to make fermented and live foods yourself.

The most important thing I learned working in a cafeteria is not to make food people don't like a second time. You can't make it better next time, because it's already flavored with bad expectations, just move on and turn those ingredients into something else. I cannot tell you how much mushroom soup we composted, because the original recipe was awful, but the manager INSISTED on having it every week. We got a new chef who improved the soup, but still, no one would touch it. What a waste of good mushrooms, and of our soup pot.

This woman understands so much It's not just about the fact that they can't pay for the food, it's about the fact that they have to go to a food bank It's not about the fact that they need help for meals, it's about the fact that they have to stand in line for "freebies" The stigmas can be the worst part and exactly as she said, giving as much dignity as you do food makes it so much better for everyone. What a wonderful, strong woman.

Great people - all of them. But not the content that has a good "brand fit" with why people are watching the ba channel... therefore: meh.

Did this on Long Island for 5 years on a Much smaller scale. But the purpose is the same, dignity and a hot meal. Unfortunately, COVID ended my participation.

It's so sad that BA has lost all my respect and that even Brad's videos feel tainted. I feel sad that he stayed, even though I don't know the full reasons/details. I'm really enjoying the new videos/styles and direction of all the chefs that left BA, I feel Brad could really have flourished as he is pretty much a fully packaged brand in himself. Sadly, I couldn't watch all this video, something about it feels sterile and inauthentic, such a shame!

Note to editor or whoever posted this to youtube, I see some channel add donate button below the video (channels like daily show or seth meyers) maybe it'll make donating easier.

I think Brad is the only person saving Bon Appetit now that all the known names stepped down and started their own thing. Wonder if Brad will split and do his own thing

The fact that she calls them clients says so much. We need more encouraging and empathetic folks around like this chef right here. People in nyc tend to not even acknowledge the house less, this lady is out there feeding them and building them up. Big respect, definitely going to donate and look into volunteering in her kitchen.
