Lettuce Eat Kale. Congratulations Sarah Henry!...

Exciting news for a journalist friend, Sarah Henry. Sarah was one of the first writers to take time, research and learn about the Lemon Lady urban fruit harvesting, foraging to feed the hungry. Almost a year later, Sarah has been awarded a scholarship to a prestigious symposium for professional food writers, based on two social justice stories she had published, including her piece titled: "The Lemon Lady, Feeding The Hungry, One Bag of Produce At A Time."

Sarah has not yet shared with me the other story that earned her this well-deserved recognition. As soon as I hear, I'll gladly share the news.

Congratulations Sarah! You are helping to change the world and I'm so very happy for you. You are a thoughtful writer, affecting positive change and awareness to social issues relating to hunger and food. You are certainly deserving of honor and praise. Your blog, "Lettuce Eat Kale" is absolutely awesome.

Sarah is a freelance writer living in Berkeley, California. She writes about school food, urban eats, people with edible interests and more. To visit Sarah's blog, "Lettuce Eat Kale," CLICK HERE.
