Philabundance CEO Loree Jones fights to reduce hunger every day.

As part of our regular Screen Time feature, Jones talked to us about her tech habits and what she does to unplug:

📱 Device(s) of choice: A pair of iPhones.

👇🏾 First tap of the day: "Opening daily inspirational texts my mom sends. There is always a positive message followed by a bunch of (corny) jokes she gets from Facebook."

🔢 Most used app: "Sudoku on my iPad. I've finally started the 'expert' level. Yes, I'm a nerd."

⏯ Currently streaming: "The Blacklist" on Netflix.

  • "Fun fact: I got to spend time with Agent Harold Cooper (actor Harry Lennix) at an Eisenhower Fellowships event last month. So cool."

ğŸŽ§ Podcast queue: "I love a good Adam Grant podcast. And then there's 'Ezra Klein' and the NY Times 'Daily.' Oh, and 'Anything for Selena' if I have any time left in the day, which I usually don't."

📖 Reading list: "Reinventing Food Banks and Pantries: New Tools to End Hunger" by Katie Martin.

  • "We need all the new tools we can find to end hunger."

ğŸŽµ On rotation: "Biden + Harris 2021 Inauguration Playlist."

  • "It's such an eclectic mix. The only downside is there aren't any show tunes on it. So I sprinkle in the 'Hamilton' soundtrack."

How to unplug: "Not sure a spinning bike counts as unplugging, but I'm so enjoying my Peloton. The yoga classes are my new fave."
