Episode 24 – #Feedthevote with Dascha Polanco

The lovely, multitalented actress Dascha Polanco joins us to talk about a project that she has undertaken along with the company Knorr. Yup, the “Cubitos on polvo nol,” Knorr, that’s the one. Together they are promoting an initiative called #feedthevote. The goal is to combat hunger and food insecurity. Listen in to hear how your vote can have a direct impact on this longstanding issue within all of our communities.


As one of Hollywood’s leading Latina actresses, Dascha Polanco is an independent, driven, mother of two who migrated to the United States from the Dominican Republic at an early age. Having gained national acclaim for her breakout role as “Dayanara Diaz” on the seven-season hit Netflix original series, Orange is the New Black (OITNB), she’s shifting gears in 2021 and starring in the highly anticipated film adaption of the famed musical In The Heights by Lin-Manuel Miranda and directed by Jon M. Chu of Crazy Rich Asians fame. In addition, Polanco will also captivate audiences as the female lead alongside Sylvester Stallone in Samaritan, set to release in theaters 2021. Currently, Polanco is the lead host of Netflix’s new weekly LatinX podcast, Con Todo: Brown Love, which celebrates the multi-faceted US LatinX experience of some of Netflix’s rising stars and their life stories in Hollywood.

Nutritious meals should be a right for everyone in America. And voting is one of the most powerful ways to support that right. This election season, join KNORR along with Dascha, Feeding America and UnidosUS as we register voters, offer families free meals, and make sure access to nutritious food is an issue this election season.
