From Jade: I believe that everyone has a right to good food, and that place and resources should not be barriers to health. Through active citizenship and sharing knowledge, I hope to be part of cultivating a community where minds and bellies are full.
I am also sincelery happy to be at an a-maize-ing organization where my food pun potential is appeachiated.
