In this week’s episode we sit down for a deeply moving talk with interior designer, writer, and bereaved mother, Donna Orbach. In 2012 Donna’s son Reuben died suddenly while studying abroad at the young age of 20. Donna opens up about her personal and familial relationship to food before and after Reuben’s death, her experience with other people’s food after his passing, and the complexities and realities of losing a child. We are so honored and humbled by Donna’s emotional generosity and we hope her openness and vulnerability can serve as an outstretched hand to others out there who are experiencing intense grief.
