Swung by the food truck event at the Hiller Aviation Museum in San Carlos for lunch the other day. I usually only stop by after going to the gym – working out justifies the eating out, right? Of course it does.
Asked what’s vegan at the We Sushi truck, the two people at the window immediately said “veggie burrito,” assorted vegetable tempura with WE dressing wrapped in sushi rice and nori for eight bucks. It’s like a giant sushi roll in the shape and size of a burrito and sliced in half instead of a bunch of pieces.
This week, I am grateful to have the opportunity to present the Health Leadership Award to 2011 graduate Alissa Bilfield. She is the co-founder of The Cookbook Project, a non-profit that provides underserved youth with experiential education in food culture, cooking, and sustainability. The organization is growing immensely, and is now gaining international recognition. Alissa even had the opportunity to meet with Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” staff in Washington, DC! Her success is an inspiration to all of us striving to create sustainable change.
