Sustainable Spork is a two in one blog for discussions on food policy and practice toward a healthier more sustainable food environment.
I am a student of food sustainability. In the summer of 2007, I watched “King Corn”, a documentary about two friends who moved to Iowa, grew an acre of corn and learned about where our food comes from and how it is grown. That was the summer that my research began and my eyes were opened to just how troubled our food economy is in the U.S, and how dangerous it is to all of us. This was the first time that I became truly passionate about an issue, and drastically changed my buying and eating habits because of it. Luckily, I have the most supportive husband in the world and he has jumped on board, allowing me to take him on this ride with me…all the way from Hartford, CT to our home of now almost 2 years in Portland, OR.
I am currently attending Portland State University, working toward my MBA with a focus on food sustainability, and taking in all I can from the local food movement happening all around me. I will use this blog as a way to share what I learn, comment on food related articles in the news, and keep a record of my culinary adventures. I hope that you, my readers will find value in what I post and share your thoughts as well. Thank you for reading!
