  "My summer in Louisville, KY as part of the FoodWorks program was incredibly transformative. I experienced first-hand the power of community organizing to contribute to the creation of a just and sustainable food system. Because of my experience with FoodWorks I am both more grounded in the reality of what  building the new economy looks like at the grassroots and empowered in my ability to instigate meaningful change in the world."
