Today’s episode is with Kim Alter, the chef and co-owner of Nightbird and the adjoining Linden Room bar in Hayes Valley, which are currently closed to customers during the crisis. But the lights are still on as her small but mighty team is cooking hundreds of meals daily for initiatives like SF New Deal and Frontline Foods. Kim is known for her commitment to local farms and sustainability, and she’s proven to be a leader in leveraging her longtime relationships to support farmers as she sources ingredients to go into these low-cost but high-quality meals. She also shares with us a day in her extremely busy life right now—you’ll be exhausted just hearing everything she’s doing. Thanks for listening to her inspiring story. You’ll find links to Nightbird’s GoFundMe and more in the episode notes, please take a look. Thank you.
