Food matters for personal, public, and planetary well-being
I currently serve as the chair for the President's Advisory Committee for Ethical Eating. I've been involved in food justice since 1997 when I first connected with migrant workers in Florida.
I also serve as the full-time, called minister at the First Unitarian Society of Westchester in Hastings on Hudson, NY. Because of my work in food justice, I continue to maintain my affiliation with our congregation in Mt. Kisco as one of their community ministers. That affiliation supports the organization I founded in 2008, InterGenerate. InterGenerate is committed to building strong communities that work together to live gently on Earth and creating equal access to food that's good, clean and fair through the creation of community gardens and egg co-ops. I am also a GreenFaith Fellow and have a history of working with both the Coalition of Immokalee Workers in 'Florida and BorderLinks in Nogales Arizona and Nogales Mexico. I currently serve as the Racism and Social Justice Consultant for the Metro NY and Saint Lawrence District and look forward to my continued work integrating our Ethical Eating Statement of Conscience into congregational life.
