Why Anim Steel is a 2019 Leadership Award honoree

JBF Editors

May 09, 2019


Each year, the JBF Leadership Awards honor five individuals or organizations responsible for creating a healthier, safer, and more equitable and sustainable food world. Our 2019 recipients touch on all sectors of the food system, from farming to manufacturing to college campuses and cafeterias. Despite their disparate titles and roles, what unites these visionaries is their passion for creating more equity, opportunity, and innovation in each step of the journey from field to plate.

2019 Leadership Award honoree Anim Steel believes his path is to foster the next generation of food system advocates. As the co-founder and executive director of Real Food Generation, Steel engages students and higher education administrators in food sovereignty programs that seek to move colleges and universities towards more local and sustainable purchasing practices. Learn more about Steel's work in the video above.
