Food Tank recently had the opportunity to speak with social innovator and writer Vicki Robin, who was one of the speakers at the 2015 Food Tank Summit.
Vicki Robin is co-author of the perennial best-seller, Your Money or Your Life, and author of the new book, Blessing the Hands that Feed Us; lessons from a 10-Mile Diet. Called the “prophet of consumption downsizers” by the NYTimes, Vicki’s radical common sense approach to money, food and life inspires people to think deeply and act with integrity. She’s a prolific social innovator, having helped launch Sustainable Seattle, Awakening the Dreamer Symposium, New Road Map Foundation, Conversation Cafes, Transition Whidbey… among many other projects. Vicki designed and launched the 10-Day Local Food Challenge for eaters who want to kick-start their shift to local eating. She’s an entertaining and inspiring speaker, and has been featured in hundreds of media outlets, including Oprah, NPR, NYTimes, WSJ, Utne, People. Her popular TEDx talk is on “Relational Eating.”
