It is simply wonderful when a person is able to combine two of their passions, and in so doing, creates something that is unique, interesting, and helps so many people to improve their lives and those of their families.

She is Jessamyn Rodriguez, the founder and CEO of Hot Bread Kitchen. Good evening, Jessamyn and welcome to The Business of Giving.
As the saying goes: “Everyone complains about the weather, but no one does anything about it.” That also holds true to a degree for the way our children eat.

Good evening, Curt, and welcome to The Business of Giving.
