So what I do is I work at this interface between research and policy, and really specifically on this issue of antibiotic resistance. So I’ll go from being in the lab using advanced genomic techniques to understand the spread of superbugs to then working with policy makers to help shape evidence based policies that protect people, and not factory farms.

We do everything from build school gardens to run farmers’ markets to handle food scrap waste in the city of New York and we have about seventy different odd programs that work on food and those issues. But I think the biggest touch that people have with our Greenmarket farmers’ markets which is the largest farmers’ market program in the country. And in Union Square alone, there are 300,000 people walking through that market a day in the summer. So we have a big reach and we can communicate the … Read More
I’m the founder of the Chef Ann Foundation, and what we do is help school districts all across the country segue from highly processed to scratch cooked food. So we’re really trying to get kids and their parents to understand how important fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, healthy proteins are; how important it is that they are locally sourced and organic when possible. And as I do that, in schools all across the country, where millions of kids are eating better food because of our work, we will change the food … Read More
One thing that’s been so amazing to me when I’ve looked at my career over the last 15 years is how far that we’ve come as a movement and the fact that food is really on our collective consciousness these days. Consumers are educating themselves more and more about how food is produced in this country and they are voting with their dollars. And it’s only been about 10 years that I have seen food become mainstream and I’m excited to see where the next 10 to 15 years will … Read More
What we’re doing at Bitty Foods is trying to introduce a new, extremely sustainable source of protein into the food system, and to create food products that introduce edible insects as a sustainable form of protein that’s really delicious, that takes away the fear factor around unfamiliar foods and introduces them as something comforting, familiar, delicious, beautifully packaged, and brings a great deal of comfort around this new food source.

My husband Drew and I started Earthbound Farm 31 years ago and I think what our company has done – lots of people all together, our farmers and all people that work with Earthbound Farm – is that we’ve shown that organic farming is viable on a large scale, and that we have products that can offer consumers a choice in supermarkets, where most of the food is still being purchased. And so I think we’re giving people an alternative to conventionally produced food that’s healthier for them and for … Read More
I have been farming for four years, with my dad on our small organic farm in California and I am so blessed to get to interact with eaters. And there’s two stories: My dad was going to bulldoze what is now our oldest variety of peaches because in the 80’s, no one wanted to buy these amazing Suncrest peaches. And it was people who wrote him letters saying, “Please, save this peach!” that literally he went out into the fields to stop the bulldozers. So in his life – I … Read More
At Bright Farms, we’re building local greenhouse farms for supermarkets in the Northeast and Midwest bringing healthy, fresh, short supply-chain food to people who otherwise couldn’t get it on a year-round basis. Read More
I just wrote the book, “What the Fork are you Eating,” and so hopefully with that book I’m going to have the great opportunity to educate so many people whether they’re nutrition neophytes or nutrition mavens to understand how their choices impact not only their health but also the health of the environment. So really my interface is with the consumers and I do it in the grocery stores. I do it in the kitchen, and this book is a guide. So I’m doing that and I’m doing my radio … Read More
I’m using whatever celebrity I have to get the message out there. I’ve been very active around issues of hunger, creating a better sustainable food system, and I have a platform now at MSNBC that will hopefully get that message out there as well. So again, this is about educating the population and letting them understand that we have some control over what is happening. We have it through the ability to vote, and we have to start linking up the idea of everything that we see that’s on our … Read More
