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
In my local food economy in Kentucky, we’ve been working with our mayor who’s really thoughtful about these issues to try and figure out what’s keeping us from getting to scale. We have great farmers’ markets, we have CSA’s, we have restaurants serving farm to table. But we’re not yet meeting the full demand of consumers for local food, and we’re not yet getting as much into the mainstream food economy as consumers want it to be. So we’ve been thinking a lot about that issue and right now our … 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
I’m still teaching full-time. I’ve geared all my classes to have some type of dialogue about the food movement, whether the class is on food or not. Currently working with Alison Cayne of Haven’s Kitchen on “Preserved” which is our short film series. And we’re working to start to savor a lot of the narrative histories of women. Read More
You know there’s so many reasons to be encouraged by what’s happening in the market place. You know, just the emphasis on local, on sustainable, and then how many times now do you see these labels that say raised without antibiotics, or no antibiotics ever? I mean that, that message is getting out there and those products are becoming more and more available. More restaurants, more grocery stores, you know more people are paying attention to this issue. So I think there’s clear movement on this. Read More
The more we can buy real food, the more we can buy sustainable food, or local food, or organic food. We make a difference. We help producers and then we can become better consumers. Read More
I think the important thing for every consumer to understand: food is medicine, food is part of what makes them a whole person. So get to understand your food, get to understand where it comes from, and understand that food is a journey. Read More
I think the explosion of farmers’ markets is kind of an example of the food movement moving forward. The number of farmers’ markets has increased dramatically across the country in the last 20 years. And that really tells you that people are interested in knowing where their food comes from, and connecting with the farmers who grow it. And that’s very heartening. And I think that’s gonna go beyond just farmers’ markets, because farmers’ markets are kind of the way that most urbanites get to connect to the farm. I … Read More
