My name is Robert, a social worker, community activist/organizer and food enthusiast.
I am currently working to develop an organization that will seek to serve the LGBTQ/Allied community of NYC via the combination of the tenets of social work and the culinary arts. Utilizing the culinary scene of New York City and beyond, I am looking to assemble members of LGBTQ and allied community with the express purposes of creating a more visible community, allowing the organic healing and empowering that “breaking bread” has been proven to enable, and offering an alternative to the pathology-based service model often adhered to when serving this demographic.
More than any politician or academic, I believe a shared meal has the power to transform lives and enable a learning that is non-proselytizing and accessible to all.
Thanks for welcoming me to this brilliant online community.
