  1. I really applaud your realistic yet different approach to bringing students together and opening minds. I believe the world, as a whole ,stands to learn a lot from your program. No matter how we my differ, race, creed, nationality, religion, financial status. We all share I very real common need in food. We also need to understand how important it is and how it effects us all. I go to Cochise College in Sierra Vista Az. and we are going to work this program in our ENG 101A course. I look forward to this experience. Good luck to you all!

  2. I saw your inspiring presentation at the NCTE Convention in DC last month. I immediately went home and drafted a 3 week Food Lit Unit for my students based on your course curriculum. We are in the final week of the unit, and the whole experience has been incredible. The level of student engagement and buy-in has been extremely high, and the activities are interesting, complex, and thought-provoking. Thank you so much for sharing your work and incredible ideas. I would love to see an entire course like this in every school!
