Your Last Meal | Why comedian Sarah Cooper loves ‘Girl Dinner’

We learn about the trend from its TikTok creator and go behind-the-scenes at Google — Cooper’s former employer — where workers get three free meals a day.

Comedian, actor and writer Sarah Cooper

Comedian and writer Sarah Cooper rose to fame in the most modern of ways: through TikTok! Her viral videos, lip-syncing Donald Trump’s speeches during the pandemic, eventually landed her a Netflix show (Sarah Cooper: Everything Is Fine), and she just released a memoir called Foolish


Your Last Meal

Before Sarah could pay the bills with comedy, she worked at Google, where employees are fed three incredibly delicious (free!) meals a day. Host Rachel Belle scored a rare, coveted interview with the director of Google’s food program, and we’ll take you behind the scenes of their 400 worldwide cafes. 

Sarah is Jamaican-American ... but she doesn’t like Jamaican food! What she does love is Girl Dinner, a viral TikTok trend that assigned a name to something we’ve all done: creating a casual meal-for-one out of the tastiest bits and bobs you can find in your fridge. Meet the creator of Girl Dinner and the writer who wrote about it in The New York Times.
