Danielle Nierenberg, co-founder of Food Tank, is a non-partisan food and ag activist—an anomaly in this hyper-divided political landscape. On this episode, Nierenberg shares the motivation for starting her business: a sense of desperation and urgency to share positive stories of agricultural development around the world. As well as a desire to get industry experts on opposing sides to talk to each other. More listening; less lecturing. Check out the pod to hear Nierenberg describe her role as storyteller and system-changer along with her vision for the future and what keeps her moving forward, even in face of overwhelming odds.
