Dan Giusti

Founder of Brigaid, New York & New London


Feeding A Million

Former Head Chef of noma, Dan Giusti founded Brigaid in 2016 to improve the quality of school food. He’s gathered professional chefs and school staff together to challenge the system, promote food education and serve kids delicious meals made from scratch at a dozen public schools in New York City and New London, Connecticut.

The realities laid bare by Giusti are a wake-up call, not just about school food but about the health and wellbeing of future generations. In conversation with Chris Ying at MAD6, he presents the cause and his appetite for change, prompting the industry to think about not the big picture, but the real one.
