command not found

Here are my code. All my input got back "command not found". Anything wrong with my code?

meeting_list = []
print("What should we bring to the meeting?")
print("Add 'DONE' while you are done.")

  new_item = ("> ")

print("Here is our list:")

for item in meeting_list:

[MOD: added ```python formatting -cf]
