Nothing Is Impossible: Robert Irvine on Service Above Self

Interview by Billy Shore

Wednesday, May 17, 2023

Chef, entrepreneur, and Food Network host Robert Irvine was appalled at the rate of food insecurity among US military families. “It is incomprehensible… that any member of our military that serves this great country could be worried about being deployed and that their family can’t be fed or housed in a safe environment,” he says.

In this episode, he describes how the Robert Irvine Foundation is helping service members and their families. He also talks about the lessons in his newest book about how to make change. “One person, one foundation, one, one group, can’t do it – as much as we all wish we could, it’s not possible. But collectively and intertwined, we can change the world.”
