Rose Tate has a passion for working with communities and schools in Mississippi. Her work has been with at-risk community residents and children in the Mississippi Delta, implementing best practices that redefine how food is grown, selected, and consumed. She also has a desire to change the quality of life in small rural communities in the Mississippi Delta. Rose hopes to change the health culture of the Mississippi Delta by lowering the rates of obesity and chronic disease. She wants to upgrade the environment of her community by replacing sidewalks and repairing structured homes.


Rose Tate is a lifelong resident of the Mississippi Delta. Her employment has been with public education as a child nutrition director, and currently as a consultant to child nutrition directors, as well as a health educator and health coach. She teaches classes demonstrating ways to prepare food to be used as medicine for improving health. Rose believes that a diet that is nontoxic and a higher standard of living are vital to improving the quality of life for rural Mississippi Delta residents.
