Screen Time: Anti-hunger leader Loree Jones
Philabundance CEO Loree Jones fights to reduce hunger every day.
- Jones, who helms one of the largest anti-hunger organizations in the Philadelphia region, took over in the midst of the pandemic last year, during a time of unprecedented need.
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."
🎧 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."
🎵 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."
