Welcome! Eat Closer To Home is a resource about the food system, as it relates to my passions, work experiences and skill sets.  Here you will find food justice and policy projects, cool things I see while working with food, and things I've been asked to share with others in the form of recipes and tips. Read about some or all of these areas depending on your interests. 

I love what I do and I want to share it with others as I learn along the way. I hope you'll find some of it informative or useful in your effort to eat closer to your home. Thanks for visiting.

Current City: St. Paul, MN

Still nothing you want to see here?

Enjoy my latest cute animal video find. I like sharing those too.
