Making Farm Fresh Food Accessible to All

Making Farm Fresh Food Accessible to All

Laugh, learn and listen to the Green Divas Radio Show & Podcast!

Chef Michel Nischan is one of our very favorite sustainable food chef/advocates. He is an award-winning cookbook author, chef and restaurateur (partner/owner of the Dressing Room with the handsome and generous Mr. Paul Newman, whom we all miss).

We talked with Chef Nischan about Wholesome Wave, an organization he founded to help make sure fresh and whole foods are accessible to everyone, especially the economically challenged in under served urban areas. We had a lot of fun talking about the upcoming monster Farm Bill.

The image is of our last visit to the Dressing Room in Westport, CT. Yes, that is the lovely Joanne Woodward with Green Diva Jenifer O’Neill (in the middle), Green Diva Meg and Chef Nischan smiling in the background.

I grow some of my own tomatoes and peppers, and try to use local farmers markets. When those aren't available, I take what's cheep and in season. Organic, free range, antibiotic free, hormone free, etc... all labels I like to see, as well as the fact that I also buy bread that doesn't have corn syrup, palm oil, and high sugar content.

I just posted an ad on kijiji looking for farm fresh free range eggs from happy chickens and got several replies from local farmers. They were averaging about $3 a dozen which is cheaper than the "free range" eggs in the grocery store. The closest farm is about 15 minutes from me--I was told by the lady that her "girls" are never caged and spend time outside on nice days. I am looking forward to meeting the "girls."

This is great, we here in the northwest portion of Missouri, have a group as well. KCFoodCircle.org, is and has been working toward this for well over 20 years. We as member vendors, try to help provide nutritious and delicious food, from our farms to the people of St. Joseph and Kansas City. It is a very rewarding job, to participate in educating about farm techniques, and changes we have made.

I am very interested in this topic as I am having to really eat healthy. I can not afford, have access in my area to fresh foods. My Dad Gregg Overman who is a chemist by trade but also has a novel out named Blue Sunrise has a wonderful garden. Talk about a green thumb so I am going to see if he can begin ti ship me things like asparagus, broccoli,Yukon Gold potatoes as those are some favorites. I think he will when they are ready & he has time?!!
