Chef Edouardo Jordan owns and operates three foodservice businesses–Junebaby, Salare, and Lucinda Grain Bar–in Seattle, Washington, the first American city to have a full-fledged outbreak of the coronavirus. In this conversation, Edouardo discusses his efforts to lift up the industry at this time of crisis, including fighting for business interruption insurance support, participating in the Independent Restaurant Coalition, and serving colleagues by converting one of his restaurants into an outpost of the Restaurant Workers Relief Program. He also discusses his open letter about the lack of minority and independent restaurant representation on the President’s Economic Council for Restaurants.
