Hello Everyone! My name is Jake, and this is my first blog post for Community Food Initiatives (CFI). This will be a little bit of a data dump at the beginning and hopefully smooth out to be more entertaining and informative by the end. Over a series of blog posts throughout the summer I’m hoping to give you a more in-depth look into CFI, the local food economy, and the extent of our collective food network.

This month we spoke with Ric Wasserman, local business owner and member of CFI’s first Board of Directors. You can still find Ric in our local food system as the owner of The Pigskin and The Corner on Union. Ric also currently sits on the Board of Directors at ACEnet. Read more about Ric’s time at CFI in the interview below.
