Congratulation to Will Allen, who made Time Magazine’s Top 100 Most Influential People List. Will is an amazing man in many ways, from his charisma to his caring, from his motivation to his incredible knowledge and skill. He’s shown thousands of people how to make real, whole, healthy food available in areas where previously the only food may have been a convenience store down the street. Access to healthy, fresh, whole foods is key to solving our nation’s growing obesity and diabetes epidemics, especially in urban and impoverished areas where the rates of those diseases are growing exponentially.
For those of you who may have missed it, or who just need a bit of a memory job, his foundation is where I’ll be teaching in May. I am honored and excited for this opportunity to be a part of such an organization.
