We are very proud that so many fellows over the years have contributed to so much positive change in the food system. And it seems that the work of many fellows has been receiving a lot of recognition lately.
The latest news comes from the blog Civil Eats. In their "Faces and Visions of the Food Movement" series of postings, Anthony Flaccavento and Ann Cooper were recently profiled. Anthony's profile provides the background for what inspired him to found the organization Appalachian Sustainable Development back in 1995, and more recently to create SCALE, Inc., (Sequestering Carbon Accelerating Local Economies).
Ann's profile describes her passion for using her stature as the "Renegade Lunch Lady" to change the way kids are fed in school. Ann also recently provided a video commentary on getting kids to eat more vegetables, which can be found on Nicole Betancourt's Parent Earth website.
Congratulations to Ann and Anthony, and thanks for your work.
