Michele Payn-Knoper: Connecting in the Kitchen

So much happens in the kitchen each day and that's the perfect place to start when you think about advocacy. From cooking to sharing a meal, there are a variety of ways to connect with people through food! Michele shares some ideas on advocating through your heart AND your stomach! 

Michele Payn-Knoper is a farm girl, mom, and one of North America's leading farm and food advocates. She authored a two-sided book,  No More Food Fights! (available in Pink Tractor's Farm Girl Shop), to bring civility to the conversations around the food plate. She's also a technology addict who founded #AgChat & #FoodChat. Michele resides on a small farm in Indiana with her daughter and a few head of registered Holsteins. You can find MPK at causematters.com, on Twitter @mpaynknoper or on Facebook.
