Borderstan: Who are the Bitches Who Brunch?

Bitches Who Brunch: We are Becca Clara Love and Cori Sue Morris, and we’re brunching our way around Washington, D.C. Oh, and we party, shop, and cook, too. Both of us have full-time careers, boyfriends, and a slew of other commitments, but we juggle it all. We both graduated from journalism school and met while working at a magazine in South Florida. The rest is history.

Borderstan: What inspired you to put on this event?

Bitches Who Brunch: Three reasons: (1) We absolutely love the amazing things that the D.C. Farm to School Network is doing for kids and families in D.C.’s public schools, and we want to help them do more. (2) We are celebrating the new brunch menu by Ris Lacoste, one of the most fabulous chefs in the District. (3) BitchesWhoBrunch.com is now officially a year old, and we wanted to give back to the lovely readers who have been with us–supporting us and encouraging us to keep on Bitching–along the way.

Borderstan: What Borderstan area businesses are involved? What is their role in the soiree?

Bitches Who Brunch: Summer brunch fashions from Rue 14 boutique will be strutted down the runway by local celebrities. We’re big fans of the shop, and we’re thrilled they’re a part of the event. Cori Sue is a Borderstan local and often stops there on her way home from brunch to pick up something to wear that evening. Other local businesses involved include South Moon Under, Progressions Salon & Spa, DC Dance Collective, Venga, Port City Brewery, Simply Soles, Frosting Cupcakery, Yelp, DC Magazine, popchips and more. We’re so grateful for all the support the business community has come forward with. People are going to leave with some pretty impressive gifts.

Borderstan: Tell us about the D.C. Farm to School Network. How did you get involved with the organization?

Bitches Who Brunch: Andrea Northup, the manager for the D.C. Network, invited us to have breakfast at CentroNia public school in Columbia Heights. We fell in love with the farm-to-school concept because we saw first-hand how much good it’s doing in D.C.’s schools. By connecting local farmers with school administrators, D.C. Farm to School ensures that kids get fresh, healthy produce straight from the farm to their cafeterias. Plus, the Network goes into schools and teaches families how to buy and cook healthy meals and snacks, so the nutrition continues once kids go home. It’s improving attendance, grades, and keeping families healthy. We wholeheartedly support educating children on the health and environmental concerns of what they eat and bringing greater awareness to the lunch table.
