What I Love
A growing interest
Like many Americans, my awareness of the problems facing our country’s food system was limited up until a few years ago. But I soon discovered that ignorance is not bliss. The food we eat is making us collectively sicker. It’s a huge public heath issue and it affects anyone in the U.S. who eats food. That’s all of us, people!
In the past decade, I have devoted considerable time and energy into creating change, on a personal level and beyond. I serve on the boards of the Seacoast chapter of Share our Strength, and Seacoast Eat Local and advise local communities on school gardens, and farm-to-school programming . I grow vegetables in containers, and am getting the hang of canning and dehydrating my "crops."
I am interested in many aspects of the food scene, from local eating to urban farming, food waste, transparent food labeling, and anti-hunger campaigns, but the bottom line for me is getting better food to more people.
What makes me happy?
