70 million is the number of free meals distributed by New York City government since mid-March, when the COVID-19 pandemic took hold. We spoke to key individuals in the public and private sector teams that made this success happen: New York City Sanitation Commissioner and "Food Czar" Kathryn Garcia, and former NYC Deputy Mayor Cas Holloway, now of Unqork, the enterprise software company that developed an app virtually overnight.

Listen to the conversation and let us know what you think: Ben Max of GG (@TweetBenMax), Maria Doulis of CBC (@MariaDoulis). Listen below or download wherever you get your podcasts!
