In Episode 9 of At The Table, Sari talks to Deepti Sharma, an entrepreneur, mother, and champion of small business owners. Deepti is the founder of FoodtoEat, a company connecting women, immigrant, and minority-owned food vendors to business opportunities. She also co-founded Bikky, a platform solving customer engagement for restaurants and, in the wake of the pandemic, she’s built Eat Bikky, a delivery platform that unlike the major third-party delivery apps, allows customers to order directly from restaurants without taking any fees.

In this conversation, Deepti explains how it has sadly taken a global pandemic to expose inequalities in the food industry and the importance of ‘humanizing’ the experience of food. She also dives into how she had adapted her endeavors to serve local communities and support the businesses she works with, from fundraising to feeding essential workers in hospitals.
