Welcome to our Spotlight series. This is where we shine a light on people and organizations that are transforming the food system and raising awareness of how important sustainability is in our everyday lives.

I set out on this journey to educate myself about our food and the journey it takes from farm to kitchen. On the way I met people who are changing the world, whether it’s reducing food waste, changing the way we recycle or transforming the way we cook, shop and eat; they are helping us reconnect with what we eat and the world around us. It’s a long list of inspirational stories, and getting longer by the minute! Here’s a peek.
