a word from

OUR CHEF

“Making decisions about food such as what we eat, how & where it’s grown, how & where it’s prepared, and the community & environment it’s consumed in have great effects on everything from well being, agriculture, environment, political policy, and societal roles. There’s no doubt that food plays a very impactful role—influencing our daily experiences & rural communities—vital to bringing us all together.”
