MORE ABOUT MATT
Matt previously spent 10 years as a humanitarian meeting short-term needs in a reactive manner. After seeing massive corporate investment with little change in the global food system in a decade, he decided to reimagine and re-explore what food equity means on a hyper-local scale. Matt works with farmers, entrepreneurs, architects, artists, nonprofit professionals, and community-based organizations to creatively target the food-related needs most shared by the community.
