Food Security (#838)
Karyn Moskowitz's passion for food justice led her to found New Roots, introducing the Fresh Stop model to Louisville. According to Moskowitz, families pool their money and SNAP benefits to purchase in bulk from local farmers on a sliding scale. Each family receives a "share" of seasonal produce, which feeds 2-4 people, depending on the Fresh Stop. Shares are available for pickup at regular times at Fresh Stop locations like churches and schools.
Moskowitz is committed to working with farmers, community organizing, and facilitating leadership development with other food justice leaders—and getting people, especially children, to eat fresh food. She also works in the areas of public interest and environmental law for citizens’ groups nationally. She has an MBA in environmental management.
