Local business and tech leaders continue to develop the Sacramento iHub; the struggle to get food assistance to California’s hungry families; catching up with West Sacramento Mayor and former Comstock’s cover subject Christopher Cabaldon; getting to know Niche Bread & Company founder Daniel Stephan.
Across the Sacramento region, food truck owners are riding their mobile success into more stationary ventures, from sit-down restaurants like Culinerdy Kitchen to food-court outposts and drive-through kiosks.
With full participation in California’s food stamp program, the state’s poor would receive an additional $1.8 billion in federal funds each year. Pending legislation would require the state to close in on that goal. Some say it’s too ambitious for a state where 58 counties manage an arduous application in a variety of ways.
Brandon Weber stood in front of a group of Sacramento entrepreneurs and local leaders, including Mayor Darrell Steinberg, and confronted a truth: Efforts to support the regional chapter of the California Innovation Hub have slowed in recent years.
West Sacramento Mayor Christopher Cabaldon says the city he used to lead “is young enough to still remember what it was like when it wasn’t a city.”
Daniel Stephan may blend in with his fellow millennials. He’s an avid podcast listener, has a few tattoos and has nurtured a passion project into a dream job. But the baker and owner of Niche Bread & Company in Midtown Sacramento also has an old-school approach to the basics of healthy living — nutrition, discipline, balance — that affects the way he runs his business.
