Shift work is a bitch, especially if your hours are completely out of whack with the kind of conveniences us nine-to-fivers take for granted. Things like, oh, I don’t know, eating? It’s a challenge and all-around pain in the ass, especially for sex workers, whose only options after long shifts are fast-food garbage not fit for a raccoon—and they’ll eat anything.
But this is slowly changing thanks to innovative and community-minded chefs like Nikeisah Newton, the mind behind Meals 4 Heels. Based out of Portland, Oregon, Newton got the idea dropping off food to an ex-girlfriend who worked as a stripper. Others took note and started requesting her food, and now she caters to dominatrixes, dancers— even bouncers.
