The Northside breaks bread

screen shot 2015-05-04 at 2 14 34 pmA great deal of the credit for this new business goes to the non-profit Appetite for Change, whose co-founder and director Michelle Horovitz spoke of the need for an enterprise which uses food as an agent for health and social change. Emcee A. J. Briscoe introduced a roster of guests, including Mayor Betsy Hodges and husband Gary Cunningham, director of the Metropolitan Economic Development Association (META), who welcomed the new restaurant as a real addition to the North Side and also as a family affair; executive chef Lachelle Cunningham is Gary’s daughter.

Travel Channel’s Andrew Zimmern, host of Bizarre Foods and a native New Yorker, remarked that “Breaking Bread being here is a great opportunity for the neighborhood and for my adopted city”.

Other speakers included Marcus Owens, executive Director of Northside Economic Opportunity Network (NEON), Princess Titus, co-founder of Appetite for Change, Shiloh Church’s Bishop Richard Howell, Matt Croaston, who read a letter of congratulations from U.S. Representative Keith Ellison, and Sue Zellickson, long-time local food maven and founder of Women who Really Cook network.
