As industries scaled to support an exploding population, many have been left in the dark. Jonas Singer argues that spending our dollars locally is the way to create more a equitable and healthy distribution of wealth in our communities. But we need to make local scale so it can compete with the massive corporations that control most industries. This is the vision of Union Kitchen, Singer’s effort to build a food system that benefits the local community.

Jonas Singer is a native of Chevy Chase, MD who is committed to advancing culture and economic opportunities throughout the Washington, D.C. region. As a Founder of Union Kitchen, Jonas works to build a food system that is profitable, just, and sustainable. Since Jonas and co-founder Cullen Gilchrist launched Union Kitchen in 2012, the business has worked with more than 150+ businesses.
