Goldman Munching Naan Marks Cafe Spice’s Quest to Feed America

In the cafeteria of Hurley Medical Center, in Flint, Michigan, a doctor walks up to the steam trays at the Cafe Spice kiosk, takes a spoon, and flicks two grains of rice pulao into his mouth.

He chews for several seconds, then walks to the other side of the counter and samples another batch. After careful deliberation, the doctor forgets the rice, takes two naan breads, douses his plate with mint chutney, and sits at a table with his colleagues -- doctors from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Nepal.
