  1. Truly inspiring work! I can’t say enough about how significant it is to make such efforts widespread. I am from Lawrence, MA and I know that Food Literacy is absolutely necessary in my community to further supports groups such as Groundwork Lawrence. I’ve had the privilege to learn about this project through Brent Peters via the Bread Loaf School of English and the Bread Loaf Teacher Network. My awareness has definitely grown and I feel deeply convicted about taking action. The student research is superb. They have taught me a great deal. I applaud the students and the amazing educators that collaborated with the students. I look forward to learning more and engaging in Food Literacy.

  2. Very inspiring work! I work with Imagine Scholar South Africa, and our students are going to love the project you created. Very much hoping to collaborate. Thank you for all that you’ve done!

  3. I came home from Bread Loaf in Vermont talking about your work! Very fun, profound and thoughtful. Looking forward to seeing this replicated in Lawrence. Keep Inspiring!

  4. I had the opportunity to hear Brent’s presentation on his food literature program at the Bread Loaf School of English in Vermont. I must say that I was amazed about how he is using his passion and expertise for both food and language and combine them into an amazing food literature program. As a matter of fact, Brent and I are currently collaborating on an exchange program based on healthy eating between one of his classes and one of mine which is at Bridge High School in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. I really look forward to it…

    • Hey Jean,
      My name is Devin, and I author this blog. I will actually be going to Haiti this fall to work with Fish Ministries, and I think we will be in Port-Au-Prince. If you would be interested, I would love to meet your class and share about Food Lit.

      Thanks for your interest!

  5. I want to congratulate you all. I want to share my admiration for the work you are doing across spaces, culture, generations and more. Keep up this excellent work and continue to share it with the world!! From Lawrence, MA.

  6. It is very cool how the students all got to travel to Kentucky and learn about food and try the local food all while having what seems like a very fun and very exiting trip!

  7. I think that it is very interesting how the students were able to engage with each other, despite the culture differences, and I know everyone one wants the quick food something easy but that’s not good for your health, my parents do that a lot with me and it makes it difficult for me because I am trying to better my health.

  8. Please leave a reply and thank you to everyone who attended the Navajo Kentuckians’ session at NIHB’s Tribal Public Health Summit.

  9. I am watching and listening to 5 of you right now talk at the National Indian Health Board National Public Tribal Health Summit in Billings, Mt. I am so happy to learn about you and what you are doing and I’m taking your story back to Alaska to share with everyone at the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium and Southcentral Foundation, one of our regional tribal health organizations. You are doing a GREAT job on that bing stage talking about some of your travels…I hope you’ll come visit us in Alaska!
