by Gretchen DeVault | June 12, 2017

I had the honor of talking with Jennifer Piette, founder of Out of the Box Collective. Jennifer opened her farm-to-home grocery delivery service in 2007 with the goal of creating a sustainable food system in her community. She shares how things have changed for her business and others within the local food distribution community. We also talk about the changing face of the sustainable food movement as a whole.
