The world has seen dramatic changes taking place through many businesses and the way we live our daily lives due to the COVID-19 crisis. On this episode, we speak to Jess Kolko at Whole Foods Market HQ to get a look inside how one of the most beloved grocers in the US has quickly adjusted and managed their company and their team to, not only keep business running, but also help all of us who rely on essential services like these during uncertain times.

After over 15 years of kitchen experience in a variety of restaurants, Jess Kolko knew that there must be a better way to teach people that they really are what they eat.
