Who is your food justice hero?

I’ve more recently been super inspired by Amber Stott over at Food Literacy Center (don’t even get me started on their phenomenal use of food puns). Her enthusiasm around bringing cooking and nutrition education to all children, regardless of their socioeconomic background is really exciting. By instilling a love for good food at an early age, more children will learn to realize that healthy food is a right and that they can drive real policy change just by making healthier choices.

Favorite Snack at Bloom Community Farm or The Hope Garden: 

I can’t walk past a row of cilantro without nibbling on a little sprig. 

If you were a vegetable, what vegetable would you be and why? 

Celery. It’s simple and helps build classic flavor foundations, but at its heart it has a feathery flare and an unexpected peppery finish. Plus, I come from hearty stalk. 

Favorite meal you’ve made with Bloom or Hope produce :Garam Marsala Roasted Carrots
