So in terms of that, I mean I know as Brooklyn Borough president you've made great progress in terms of Healthy nutrition in schools trying to reform nutrition in hospitals and you have this educational program at Bellevue. So it's educating the future. The generation of doctors it's getting kids, you know, hooked on healthy food, as opposed to unhealthy food, your you've Incorporated, all of these principles in your office. You know, whether it's a crazy situation with what you do personally and with all the exercise equipment and the food prep and all that kind of stuff, which we can talk about. But when you cross the bridge and you're in Manhattan and you're sitting in that chair, what is the, what's the plan? Like, how are you going to be able to scale these? Ideas to impact, New York City, more broadly,
and think big really thinking big and not being afraid to fail. And that is we've lost our adventurous Outlook. Even though we are explorers by existence, if we were and we would be still standing on one rock and not exploring this entire globe and we need to think differently and Surround ourselves. People who are willing to think differently and that's the real problem of we are stagnant. As a nation, we're going through the motion which is continually getting up. Time to make the donuts time to make the donuts. No one is saying, let's think out beyond that. And so we're going to lean into hydroponic, vertical Farmers. Even as the discussion continues around, does the soil play, a more important role or not, let's get there. Let's be clear on what Thing, we know the food that we are feeding our people now is unhealthy and not, everyone is going to eat organic from the soil. We know that fertilizers is doing a number on us. So we're going to really push the envelope on. How do we teach children how to grow healthy food? How do we teach children to have a nutritional Base education, to learn the origin of food to learn spices in home economic classes. I was blown away to find out the power spices. Spices are more healthy than the food,
we eat, like how excited you get?
And and so the goal is we're going to start from the place. We should not feed the crisis. What you put on your grill in, the backyard is beyond my control but you are not going to come into a government to agency as a prisoner. And I'm going to feed you unhealthy food if you're incarcerated as a child and ACS. I'm not feeding you in healthy food. If you are my health and hospital system, you're not getting enough healthy food. I'm not feeding those nine hundred and sixty thousand meals a day in a Department of Education, to be unhealthy food. We're going to look at wherever we're feeding. To make sure at a minimum, you're getting healthy. Good tasting food. So we don't feed the healthcare crisis because that's what we're doing now, right?
