Werdell is the co-founder of Acorn Food Dependency Recovery Services, the driving force behind the Food Addiction Institute, and a key figure behind the only med-school-sponsored conference on food addiction anywhere, which will meet for its third year this fall.
Food Addiction Institute
Two groups that I not only express my endorsement for, but have actually given money to are conducting short-term fundraisers right now, so of course, I am giving again, and I would like you to give as well.
City Sprouts partners with schools to include gardens in core curriculums, one of those simple, elegant, and deep ideas that everyone should love.
I've mentioned Phil Werdell enough times that he has his own keyword on the site, and I'm happy to spread word of his work any time I can. He's a friend and a mentor.
Today, I'm spreading word just a little bit farther, or differently, via Today's Honoree, a website that recognizes someone every day. I'm not sure how I found them; more likely, they found me via a broadly cast e-mail campaign, which is not to say spam.
