Prior to co-founding the Good Food Foundation, Sarah worked side by side with the sustainable food movement’s visionaries across the globe. Fresh out of college, as the Director of Communication for the Slow Food International Office in Italy, she was immersed in the roots of the food movement before heading to California to become Alice Waters’ “Girl Friday” (in Alice’s words). Next she spearheaded the development of the first large scale U.S. sustainable food event, Slow Food Nation with 85,000 guests, then went on to produce the 20,000 person Organic Food Festival in Bristol, England for the Soil Association, which enjoyed the patronage of H.R.H. The Prince of Wales. Subsequently she helped launch the first Sips & Suppers annual fundraiser with Alice Waters, Joan Nathan and Jose Andres, as an answer to President Obama’s call for a day of service before his first inauguration. To date, it has raised over $4.5 million for organizations addressing food insecurity through a sustainability lens in our nation’s capital.
