It was great catching up with Sarah Weiner, Executive Director of the Good Food Foundation. She is a perfect example of someone that followed their passion for food and seems to have created her dream career sharing sustainable food and promoting artisan producers. “Sarah has worked side by side with the sustainable food movement’s founders and visionaries across the globe. As the Director of Communication for the Slow Food International Office in Italy, she was immersed in the roots of the food movement before heading to California to become Alice Waters’ “Girl Friday” (in Alice’s words) for two years. Next she spearheaded the development of Slow Food Nation as its Content Director, produced the 20,000 person Organic Food Festival in Bristol, England for the Soil Association, developed the Art.Food.Hope fund-raising campaign on the eve of Barack Obama’s Presidential Inauguration, and co-founded Seedling Projects.She is the founder of the Good Food Foundation and for over a decade she has grown the Foundation.” We talked about some of the ways the Foundation needed to reformulate the judging of the Good Food Awards during the pandemic, what this year’s festivities will look like and how quality, small batch food products continue to grow. Since the Good Food Awards began they have had over 6000 entries from across the country. The five key programs under the Good Food Foundation are spreading the word, one producer at a time, all with sustainability, connection, and concentration on reforming the American food culture.
