Indigenous Food Sovereignty
When you think of cooking in college, do the words “budgeting” and “microwave chef” come into mind? Many college students today rely heavily on scholarship funding and family aid to survive hectic semesters. And when it comes to keeping your fridge stocked, the healthiest foods can be the most expensive. For this episode, we sit down with special guest Sean Sherman (Oglala Lakota), founder and CEO of the Sioux Chef. Tune in as Sherman chats about his passion for bringing back Indigenous ways of cooking, the turning point in his life that led him to be a chef, and his advice for students cooking on a budget (hint: lots of veggies and potluck with friends!).
