I’m sure you’ve heard of Elon Musk the CEO of SpaceX, CEO of Tesla, Silicon Valley god, and 80th wealthiest person in the world. With a resume like this guy, everybody else kind of gets lost in the shadows … but not his brother — Kimbal Musk.
If you’re living in the Colorado area (like myself) then you are very well aware of Musk’s amazing farm to table restaurant — The Kitchen. With locations in Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins, Memphis, and Chicago, The Kitchen brings customers fresh, locally sourced foods crafted into delicious meals. Take my word for it, I had the pleasure of checking The Kitchen out last Saturday at its Lodo Denver location. Not only was the food fresh and tastefully prepared, all the ingredients came from farmers nearby!!
Musk’s goal is to provide customers with “real food.” So many millennials have become very aware of where their food is coming from and what ingredients are at play. No longer is highly industrialized food a desirable option — in fact, it’s frowned upon. And Musk isn’t stopping there, he even started his own nonprofit, The Kitchen Community, which creates ‘Learning Gardens’ in schools so that kids can learn about eating right and creating a diet with fresh fruits and vegetables.
Doing good seems to be Musk’s mantra. Check out his interview with Natalia Brzezinski (a fellow midwesterner) from the Brilliant Minds podcast, where he discusses his mission to end unhealthy eating in America.
Katherine is a newbie to Denver. She recently completed her Masters in Peace and Justice Studies at the University of San Diego. When she isn’t trying to save the world, Katherine is all about trying any and all delicious foods, hitting up the beach but not actually swimming (deathly afraid of sharks), and taking as many hikes as humanly possible.
