Awards for sustainable-food work
The award selection panel is chaired by Michael Pollan, author of the bestselling "The Omnivore's Dilemma." “While food is an essential part of our day-to-day lives, most Americans are unaware that climate change and our food system are inextricably linked,” he says.
The panel picked nine finalists, and the winners will be announced in early May. Here's a list of them, three in each of three categories:
Thought leader: Ann Cooper of Berkeley Unified School District, Berkeley; James Harvie of Institute for a Sustainable Future, Duluth, Minn.; Sibella Kraus of Sustainable Agriculture Education, Berkeley.
