Environmental conservation has been important to me since childhood, but it didn’t become an obsession until after I graduated college with an arguably worthwhile, but somewhat unhelpful, degree in visual arts.
Starting in 2012, I have been working at food access nonprofits centered around supporting local agriculture and urban farming. For the last several years I have worked in the field of “food rescue,” collecting food from farms and supermarkets that would otherwise be wasted, and distributing it to underserved communities.
Through this blog I want to share with you what I’ve learned from my work and personal waste-reduction journey, while bringing you perspectives from my network of wise food rescue professionals. Let’s push full-steam ahead toward building the tools and systems we need to conserve, preserve, and value our resources.
